THE SPIRIT JOURNAL HALL OF FAME
Since 1991, F. Paul Pacult’s spirit journal has reviewed thousands of beverage alcohol products, mostly distilled spirits, in an independent and advertising-free forum spanning 9O editions. Now, in recognition of spirits brands that have consistently exhibited extraordinary quality over numerous formal reviews, Pacult and Managing Editor Sue Woodley have established a special honor: The Spirit Journal Hall of Fame. Induction into the Hall will retire specified benchmark spirits from the newsletter’s annual “Top Spirits” list and place them in perpetuity in a pantheon of Super Star Spirits.
The first five inductees in the inaugural class of 2O11 are:
1 Highland Park 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky, Scotland
2 Cointreau Liqueur, France
3 Midleton Very Rare Blended Irish Whiskey, Ireland
4 Nonino Cru Grappa di Monovitigno Picolit, Italy
5 Frapin Extra Grande Champagne Cognac, France
