JUNE 2, 2020 – Since its introduction in 2000, the SFWSC has become one of the most respected and influential spirits competitions in the world.
During highly controlled blind tastings, judging panels tasted every product to award the finest and most complex liqueurs, Spirit France is proud to announce that for the 2020 edition, the members of the judging panel awarded the gold medal to Le Verger – French Terroir Liqueur.
“To receive such an award in blind tasting competition against the best liqueurs in the world is a huge milestone for Spirit France” said Serge Der Sahaguian, CEO at Spirit France. “We are all the more enthusiastic considering our partnership with our US importer 375 Park Avenue Spirits, a group that believed in the project from day 1”.
