CHICAGO, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicago-based SomPriya Fine Spirits is proud to accept the coveted Gold Medal from the prestigious SIP International Spirits Competition held in Newport Beach, CA on May 22, 2016.
Internationally respected as the only honest consumer spirit competition, the SIP Awards is unique in its extensive screening and security measures which ensure the Judging Panel is comprised purely of everyday spirit consumers, not tainted with any endorsement, involvement or influence from the spirit industry. The SIP Awards presented the 98 member Consumer Judging Panel with a record-breaking 462 international brands, in over 59 categories, for a double blind tasting.
SomruS, which is already rated in the 98th percentile of ALL liqueurs on the market according to Proof66.com, adds this Gold Medal to a long list of industry accomplishments including a 94 Point Rating by Wine Enthusiast and Top 50 Spirits of 2014 by the magazine which describes it as "creamy but light and…a palate-cleansing way to end a richly spiced meal." Others agree as noted by the New York Spirits International Competition who named SomruS "Cream Liqueur of the Year" for 2014, The Beverage Tasting Institute who awarded it a 94 Point Rating, and the China Wine & Spirits Awards (CWSA) 2015, who awarded the brand a Gold Medal. Recently, SomruS was honored to be named a hot trend and "one of the most visited booths" at the 2016 NRA & BAR Show held in Chicago on May 22-23, 2016 by Crain's Chicago Business.
About SomruS, the World's First Indian Liqueur: SomruS is an intricate blend of pure dairy cream and hand-crafted rum with the distinctive eastern flavors of cardamom, saffron, almonds, pistachios and rose. The result is an all-natural, gluten-free and preservative-free liqueur with a two-year shelf life never before seen or tasted. SomruS can be savored on its own or incorporated into a delectable cocktail or dessert. It is also the first liqueur that pairs naturally with tea, either hot or cold.
SomruS is housed in an exotic, gold-coated, UV protected, custom-made glass bottle which draws inspiration from an ancient Indian decanter, instantly setting it apart from anything else on the shelf.
SomruS is currently sold by prominent distributors in IL, NJ, NY, CT and FL with plans to go nationwide in coming months. SomruS has been successful in retailers such as Whole Foods, Sam's Club, Binny's, Mariano's, Liquor Barn and Total Wine & More. It is also available online at www.SomruS.com. Internationally, SomruS is launching in Dubai later this summer and has entertained inquiries from the UK, India, Canada, Israel and several countries in Latin America. In July 2016, SomruS will launch its first global airline partnership with Sri Lankan Airlines.
