The International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) was founded in 1969 and stands as the premier competition of its kind. Its aim is to promote the quality and excellence of the world's best wines, spirits and liqueurs, a standard achieved through a rigorous two-stage judging process of professional blind tasting and detailed technical (chemical and microbiological) analysis that takes place at the competition's headquarters in Surrey, UK. To ensure perfect conditions, the premises include temperature-controlled cellars, a fully equipped independent laboratory for technical analysis and three dedicated tasting rooms.

For more information about the IWSC, please visit its website.

Ministry of Rum Tasting Competition

2009

Gold Medal - Premium Rum

 

 

 

 

The Ministry of Rum Tasting Competition stands apart from others held in the US and Europe as it focuses on Sugar Cane Spirits, which are judged on their own merit and in classes recognised by the Sugar Cane Spirits industry.

Entrants are judged for their aroma, initial taste, body and finish on a scale of 1 - 25 for each attribute.  At least 20 judges at each tasting session ensures that no one or two judges can influence the results and that each spirit is judged on its own merit.

Visit the Ministry of Rum for more information.
