(May 18, 2018) Seacrets Distilling Company was named Maryland Rum Distillery of the Year during the ninth annual New York International Spirits Competition.

Close to 600 spirits from around the world competed in a blind tasting where top spirits buyers from around the New York metropolitan area judged the products by their category and price.
