SALEM, MA. (July, 2019) – Powell & Mahoney Craft Cocktail Mixers, a leading craft cocktail mixer manufacturer in the U.S., received three tasting medals at the 2019 Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards Competition held in Newport Beach California. A total of 977 spirits and mixers entered the competition, making it their largest competition to date. SIP’s panel of consumer judges sampled all entrants blindly to guarantee unbiased reviews based solely on aroma and taste.
All products submitted were awarded within their respective categories. Powell & Mahoney’s Skinny Margarita is the only mixer in its category to be awarded a Platinum Medal. A Silver Medal winner in 2017, the Skinny Margarita was recently reformulated, reducing sugar, adding pure agave, and lowering calories to 50 per serving. Additionally, Powell & Mahoney’s entire line achieved Non-GMO certification. The Classic Margarita won the next highest award of Double Gold, followed by the brand’s Original Bloody Mary mix which took home a Silver Medal.
“We are ecstatic to receive these awards and expect nothing less from our products. We listen to our consumers’ needs and continuously make improvements to ensure our products surpass their expectations,” explains KC Commoss, VP Business Development.
Powell & Mahoney is no stranger to tasting competitions, holding over 20 tasting awards. SPINS, a division of Nielsen and leading provider of retail consumer insights for the Natural, Organic, and Specialty Products industry, identified Powell & Mahoney #1 in Natural, #1 in Specialty, and the fastest growing mixer in grocery.
“Our goal is to make the best products and to minimize our reliance on sugar. We recently improved the entire Margarita line, with extra focus placed on bringing Skinny’s calorie count way down without impacting our amazing flavor profile,” states Chris Crandall, Chief Operating Officer, adding, “We are committed to providing products we would be proud to serve to our family and friends. For Skinny Margarita to win a SIP Platinum Medal, reassures us our “quality first” mentality is what truly sets us apart from the pack.”
