Oyo, the flagship vodka from Middle West Spirits, nabbed a Gold Medal at the International Review of Spirits competition recently held in Chicago. The small-batch liquor received 92 points, out of 100, earning an “Exceptional” rating.

Out of 140 unflavored vodkas, only 6 spirits scored better than a 92 in the competition, which is hosted by the Beverage Testing Institute. Drinks were tasted blind by a panel, and one taster said:

“Clear. Bright aromas of dried pear, custard, and buttery honeyed praline with a supple, soft off-dry medium-full body with a long, spicy apple pie crust, cream, and mineral finish. Exceptional, flavorful, and delicious.”
