Simple Spirits, an emerging portfolio of premium spirits, is proud to announce its exceptional performance at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). The competition, distinguished for its rigorous judging process and esteemed panel of experts, recognized Simple Spirits' unwavering commitment to innovation and creating spirits of the highest caliber.

Simple Vodka has carved a path of distinction by using farm-fresh Idaho® Potatoes and pristine water sourced directly from the renowned Snake River Aquifer. Following strict quality standards, Simple Spirits ensures that Simple Vodka contains no additives or secret ingredients. Simple Vodka delivers an authentic, ultra-smooth taste that has captivated the discerning palates of spirits connoisseurs. The groundbreaking achievement of a Platinum Medal further solidifies Simple Vodka's position as a leading producer of premium vodka.

Hawthorn's London Dry Gin was once again awarded the esteemed Double Gold Medal. This extraordinary gin, first crafted at sea by Hawthorn's founder Will Turnage's grandfather during World War II, honors a rich legacy of artisanship. Hawthorn's London Dry Gin offers a harmonious balance, featuring unique citrus notes that set it apart from traditional gins. Its consistent recognition at the SFWSC reaffirms the exceptional quality and craftsmanship that goes into every bottle.

Xoma Pulcatta made an impressive debut, securing a Silver Medal in the highly competitive agave spirits category. Handcrafted in cooperation with a network of milpa farmers in Puebla, Mexico, Xoma Pulcatta represents the revival of an agave spirit that dates back to the Aztecs. Circular farming methods ensure sustainability while preserving authentic flavors that make Xoma Pulcatta a uniquely superior agave spirit. 

Simple Spirits was also recognized as Innovator of the Year. This distinguished honor acknowledges Simple Spirits' unique social-impact model, emphasizing the importance of brand ethos alongside product quality. The brand's mission to combat hunger in America by providing a meal through local food banks for every drink poured exemplifies its dedication to community support. To honor its naval lineage, Hawthorn's London Dry Gin takes it further by supporting U.S. Veterans in need, ensuring Simple's contributions extend beyond the spirits it creates. 

"We are honored and humbled to receive the highest of honors from the esteemed judges at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition," says Danny Lafuente, CEO and Founder of Simple Spirits Company. "As a company, we exist to be more than just what's in the bottle - but the continued recognition for the excellence of our spirits makes it a lot easier to do the good we set out to achieve."

Texas Titan Willie’s Grill & Icehouse to Open Anticipated Kyle Location July 17

Willie's Kyle is the 20th Willie's in Texas, as well as the eighth location featuring a full bar

Willie's Grill & Icehouse will officially begin serving its signature Texas comfort food in Kyle, Texas, on Monday, July 17, 2023. The anticipated Kyle outpost is the 20th in the state for the Texas-based, Texas-grown brand, as well as the eighth location to feature an expansive full bar. The addition underscores Willie's reign as the region's top family-friendly haven, where a renowned scratch Texas kitchen and casual icehouse vibes offer wholesome fun for parents and kids.

Located at 19220 I-35, Kyle, TX 78640, Willie's in Kyle is defined by the same mouthwatering menus, sprawling open-air patio spaces, and genuine friendliness that have endeared the brand to families for almost three decades. Retractable glass garage doors facilitate easy movement between outdoors and Willie's colorfully decorated interior, rooted in vintage-inspired nods to the Texas icehouse tradition. Outside, games, 18 massive flat-screen TVs, and ample seating beckon, providing plenty of room for relaxing, watching a game, and reconnecting with family over classic dishes always made from scratch, served with inspired craft cocktails, local brews, and more.

Willie's steadfast commitment to the community remains an anchor at the Willie's Kyle location as well. First up: substantial donations to the Kyle Fire Department and Seton Foundations. In addition to ongoing philanthropic efforts, Willie's presence in Kyle has also created more than 100 local jobs. Willie's actively promotes and hires from within, believing every position has the potential for long-term career growth.   

The Willie's Kyle menu features what's made Willie's famous, including burgers so stacked with Texas housemade fixings that they nearly topple over, plus chicken fried steaks that are crispy outside, hot and tender inside, and almost spilling off the plate. Beloved options include Willie's Favorites: The Icehouse Willie, a half-pound beef burger smothered with cheese, bacon, and mushrooms; the Catfish & Shrimp Combo, featuring battered and fried catfish and shrimp, served with fries and cool coleslaw, plus cocktail and tartar sauces and lemon wedges on the side; and Chicken Tenders, hand-breaded and served with fries, with the option to spike the tenders' flavor profile by tossing them in buffalo, BBQ, garlic parmesan, or honey garlic sauces. 

"Kyle was the perfect location for our newest Willie's restaurant," said Greg Lippert, CEO of Willie's Restaurants. "We're lucky to have gotten to know the community in our short time here. We've quickly learned their values, energy, and love of great food align with ours, so we are sure this is going to be a match made in heaven."
