Posted on August 07, 2019

San Diego, Calif.—SIP Awards named Perfekt Zero the winner of a 2019 Platinum tasting award, the highest level of five tiers. Perfekt Zero was the only alcoholic seltzer to receive this prestigious award level. The platinum award recognizes exceptional flavor and is given by discerning consumer judges.

"We're so thrilled to have earned a Platinum award. As the alcoholic seltzer market explodes in popularity, consumers are demanding better ingredients and better flavor. We're so happy to be singled out as the best tasting option in the market."

- Barbara Zeiss, Perfekt Zero co-founder

"The alcoholic seltzer market is completely controlled by large, international beer brewers who use flavored beer as their alcohol base. We went out on a limb and used citrus wine as our base, and we've been rewarded. The superior flavor is obvious."

Goldman Sachs research shows that alcoholic seltzers are at the fastest-growing segment of the alcoholic beverage market, and grew 18.5% in 2018 in the US. The category is now bigger than Alcoholic Ciders.

SIP awards in the largest, international, consumer judged spirits competition. The 2019 competition included 3,861 entrants from 977 brands.
