The winning mixers are Peach Bellini (gold medal), Chipotle Bloody Mary (gold medal), Sriracha Bloody Mary (gold medal), Roasted Jalapeno Margarita (silver medal), and Original Bloody Mary (silver medal). Gold medal winner Sriracha Bloody Mary also took home “Best in Show” for the cocktail mixer category.
This recognition of brand quality comes shortly after Powell & Mahoney’s line expansion. The handcrafted mixer brand introduced Sriracha Bloody Mary and Chipotle Bloody Mary in the winter of 2013, and released Roasted Jalapeno Margarita and Mango Passion Fruit Margarita in the summer of 2014.
Powell & Mahoney, Ltd. has become a true leader in the mixer category, and has experienced continued growth year over year. The success of Powell & Mahoney can be attributed to their commitment to small batch quality, natural ingredients, and mouth-watering flavors.
