LOS ANGELES, Sept. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lately, we have been hearing a lot of positive news from Dennis Rodman's Bad Ass Vodka camp, and last month the company managed to pick up two prestigious awards. Dennis, who is a five-time NBA championship winner, can now also proudly say that him and business partner Andreas Johansson have won awards at both the San Diego Spirits festival (one of the top-ranked festivals in the US) and the Alberta Beverage Awards, competing with more than 700 entries.
- "Both myself and Dennis are both very competitive in everything we do, and being able to win awards always serves as a testament to your success. The fact that we won two major prizes in such close proximity to each other serves as an assurance for us that we are truly on the right track," said CEO and Founder Andreas Johansson.
The San Diego Spirits Festival took place for the sixth year in row during late August, and the competition has been rated as one of the top in the country. Amongst fierce competition, Bad Ass Vodka managed to win the Founders Gold Award.
The Alberta Beverage awards is open to any brand currently on sale in the Province of Alberta, and Bad Ass Vodka won a Judge's Selection Award, an award that have gone to household names such as Tito's Handmade Vodka and New Amsterdam Vodka in the last two years.
- "It was fantastic to have a celebrity vodka win an award, proving that what is in the bottle is just as important as what is on the outside," said Tom Firth, competition director for the Alberta Beverage awards.
