Established in 2000, San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the oldest and the most influential international spirits competition in United States of America. The jury comprises of seasonal experts in the spirits industry. The judging is based on a blind tasting where the whiskies are evaluated on an individual basis and not compared with the other entries. A Double Gold Medal is awarded to an entry when a Gold Medal rating is received by all the members of the judging panel.
