“We entered into the San Francisco World Spirits Competition & WON!”


Our Tequila Hierba Madura won a Double Gold Medal and our Island Bush Herb Rum won a Silver Medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The SFWSC is recognized as one of the most challenging and highly respected spirits tasting competition in the world.

Double Gold is awarded to entries receiving a Gold rating from all members of the judging panel; these are among the finest products in the world. Dr. Stoner’s Tequila Hierba Madura is farmed and distilled in the high altitudes of Jalisco Mexico and aged one year or more in freshly dumped bourbon barrels. The agave is caramelized in wood fired stone ovens prior to fermentation. The resulting spirit has a mellow bourbon upfront taste with a vibrant smooth agave finish.

“It’s remarkable and reassuring that in a market where virtually all tequilas claim to be ultra-premium that ours has been judged to be just that by such a prestigious group.” – David Baxter, President.




Silver is awarded to outstanding spirits showing refinement, finesse and complexity: these winners are among the best examples of their categories. Dr. Stoner’s Island Bush Herb Rum is distilled from unrefined panela cane sugar. The resulting blanco rum is so smooth and delicious with the earthy flavors of the raw sugar, it beats barrel aged rums.

Kevin Kobylinski, VP Sales – “We’re continuously reinforced by our acceptance in the markets. Our quality is simply unbeatable at our price point.”
