Drake's Organic Premium Vodka was awarded Double Gold and Drake's Organic White Rum received Gold at the recent Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) Convention & Exposition in Orlando, FL. The highly-respected awards are widely considered among the most prestigious in the industry because judges are industry experts who blind taste-test each spirit.
