2021 Flaviar Awards

The Academy of Flaviaristas has chosen their flavorites! It’s time to shine a much-deserved spotlight on the most revered and acclaimed Spirits of 2020.

The Bigwhiffs

The Flaviar Awards are a very exclusive affair. They rely on our Community’s collective palate—along with sales numbers and staff input—to cherry-pick the best Spirits out there. Last year’s expressions that left a lasting impression are an American Single Malt, a Tennessee Whiskey, a blended Rum, a Rum & Rye blend, and a Scottish Single Malt Scotch.
May the toasting and back-patting begin!
