Online PR News – 28-July-2011 – – Ft. Lauderdale - SXCalypso and SXSamba, premium rums offered by SX Liquors, both received silver medal awards in the flavored rum category from the Beverage Tasting Institute (BTI) in July. While both were rated “highly recommended” by the prestigious reviewer of wines and spirits, SXCalypso earned 88 out of a possible 100 points and the highest taste rating for rums this year.

“SX is ecstatic about its rums receiving such high ratings from a respected industry reviewer,” said SX CEO David Knight. “I’m proud that SX is not only being recognized for excellence, but that it is hitting a note with consumers looking for spirits infused with sensual and exotic ingredients.”

The BTI has been reviewing the world’s best-tasting wines, beers and spirits for the past 30 years. Its website, Tastings.com, highly recommends the mint and lemon infused SXCalypso. BTI called the spiced rum “a fun, flavorful rum for mixing,” describing it as having “aromas of lemon-lime soda, double mint gum, and cane syrup with a lightly tannic, fruity, medium body.”

SXSamba, a cachaca-style sugar cane rum with sweet limes and vanilla, was also highly recommended. BTI noted “aromas of warm Key lime custard and honey with a slightly tannic, fruity, sweet, light-to-medium body and a diet lemon soda and honey candy finish with peppery heat.”

SX products have won a series of accolades this year. The two silver medals from the BTI come on the heels of a gold medal win in March at the world-renowned San Francisco World Spirits Competition. SXchachacha, 100 percent agave reposado tequila with honey and lemons was selected as best tequila from among more than 1,100 products from 61 countries.

SX products are already available in a number of stores and restaurants in South Florida. Find the full list of stores carrying SX on its website and connect with SX via Facebook and Twitter.
