Founded in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the oldest and largest competition of its kind.
The Tasting Alliance Competitions are considered the most influential for a reason. Earning medal from the organization not only helps brands enter and stand out in the U.S. and international markets but is a critical next step for any producer to earn recognition in the industry and with consumers.
“Each year’s results are closely followed, both by consumers eager for the expert judgements and more importantly by the trade, especially the distributor community. Many
a craft distillery startup has found that recognition by the SFWSC is the golden key to
unlocking broad national, and often, international distribution. Even established producers look to the
SFWSC for confirmation of their core ranges, as well as validation of new products and production techniques.”
