Released in February 2019, the craft bourbon was aged in a small warehouse in East Atlanta. It is the first bottled in bond bourbon produced in the city in more than a century. Old Fourth Distillery’s Bottle in Bond Bourbon was a standout for the panel of more than 40 judges that tasted more than 3,000 spirits during the three-day competition.

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the largest competition in the world, with entries and judges from around the globe.

“We’re really proud of this one-of-a-kind whiskey—it’s an example of what’s possible in the city of Atlanta,” said Jeffery Moore, co-founder of Old Fourth Distillery. “It’s an amazing feeling to craft and nurture this dream into a delicious, complex spirit. I love it, our friends love it, our customers love it, and evidently, the experts do, too.”

Old Fourth Distillery gin has won silver medals for the previous three years.

“Our Southern Dry Gin has an amazing citrus-forward blend with really interesting spice notes,” Moore said. “We use pink peppercorn, cardamom, coriander and even juniper berries from Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery.”

This is the first time an Atlanta-made gin has earned a medal in international spirits competition.

Founded by brothers and Atlanta natives Jeffrey and Craig Moore in 2012, Old Fourth Distillery Launched in 2014 with its first release of vodka. Located in Atlanta’s historic Old Fourth Ward, it is the city’s oldest distillery.

Old Fourth Distillery makes vodka, gin and bottled-in-bond bourbon.
