MurLarkey has officially gone platinum! 

Thanks to the incredible support of our loyal fans, MurLarkey has won five Platinum Awards in Savor Virginia’s Best Readers’ Choice 2021, including the Platinum Award for Best Distillery Overall. 

“We are honored to be named Best Distillery Overall. It is a great tribute to the love, passion, and dedication our team brings to MurLarkey and to our loyal fans every day, ” MurLarkey COO Jim Larkin said.

MurLarkey Master Distiller George ‘Papi’ Zwetkow was named the Platinum Award winner for Best Distiller, having won Gold in the same category last year.

“I’m just doing what I love to do,” said Papi. “There are some great distillers here in Virginia; the fact that people like our spirits enough to name me Best Distiller two years in a row is an incredible honor and I am most grateful. I will continue doing what I do.”

MurLarkey also took home the Platinum Awards for Best Distillery Tasting Room, Best Distillery for Vodka, and Best Distillery for Gin!
