KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The San Francisco
World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) announced results for 2021 and
Mean Mule Distilling Co. has earned the prestigious Gold award for
its Silver spirit. This is Mean Mule's first recognition from the
SFWSC, and is the latest achievement in a year of growth for this
emerging leader in the Agave spirits category.
In a year riddled with challenges brought on by COVID-19, Mean
Mule has shown exceptional focus and determination that has enabled
growth and success few have enjoyed in the spirits industry. "We
are over the moon to have our Silver spirit recognized with the
Gold medal from the SFWSC!" said Jeff
Evans, CEO and founder of Mean Mule. "We are so grateful to
our entire team and loyal customers. This award is a testament to
their hard work and passion for our products."
In only their fifth year of operation, Mean Mule has quickly
grown from scrapy start-up to standard bearer for American Agave
spirits. In addition to the now award winning Silver Spirit, Mean
Mule's product line-up also includes a Gold spirit that is aged for
at least eight weeks in virgin Missouri White Oak barrels, and the
recently launched Heritage spirit that is aged for a full year in
Missouri White Oak barrels.
The growth in their product line is only one bright spot over
the past year. Since 2018 Mean Mule has been aggressive in
marketing their products through their own tasting room and private
event space, both located in Kansas
City's historic Crossroads district. When faced with the
challenges that COVID-19 presented to in-person gatherings the team
at Mean Mule quickly pivoted to a digital-first approach to
promoting and selling their spirits and handcrafted cocktail kits.
"This brand is all about delivering an experience that complements
the product itself," said Meg Evans,
COO of Mean Mule. "So to have the SFWSC acknowledge the Silver
spirit as setting the standard for our category really validates
our commitment to this standard of quality."
As one of the first American distillers to use Weber Blue Agave,
Mean Mule considers this award a great honor for them and those
distillers who are following in their footsteps. Master Distiller
Tyler Gloe and his team acknowledge this important milestone and
are eager to repeat the achievement in 2022 by continuing to
deliver products and experiences that enable customers to relax and
enjoy unique, quality spirits time after time.
