Despite tariff pressures, the American whiskey category is thriving with producers of all sizes offering exceptional liquid. We round up the expressions scoring highly in our recent blind-tasting competition.

The Spirits Business held its annual American Whiskey Masters last month, where an experienced panel of judges recognised the best bottlings in the business.

Looking across multiple categories, from single malt to Tennessee whiskey, Bourbon to rye, a wide range of whiskeys were awarded the top accolades of Master and Gold medals for their quality.

The individual scores of each entrant have not been revealed, however these are 10 of the highest rated medalists in the competition, in no particular order.

While some expressions are not standard priced, our judges have given each American whiskey listed here the seal of approval for offering excellent quality within their respective price categories.
