"I have participated in several editions of Spirits Selection, in various countries around the world. The organization is amazing and the flight service is punctual, accurate and very professional. The samples are evaluated with the utmost and the judges provide valuable and timely feedback to the producers in the evaluation sheets. For me, above all, it represents a great opportunity for professional growth as Spirits Selection organizes educational sessions with internationally renowned speakers. Contact with professionals from around the world and privileged access to producers in the host country significantly enhances the opportunity to deepen one’s network and knowledge of all alcohol products."Davide Terziotti - ItalyAngel's Share - Notizie e curiosità dal pianeta whisky
"It was my first intervention at Spirits Selection. Wow, was I impressed. The high standard of judging and professionalism is exceptional! The idea of master classes, especially with unknown products like Baijiu was wonderful. I did all the reading you sent, that trigged me to do some extra reading but still it was the master classes with the tastings that brought the whole picture together. With that it gave me the confidence to do the Baijiu tastings."

"Well, I have thought a lot about this trip and I always come to the same conclusion: it was overwhelming and absolutely fantastic! I have already participated in a few other spirits contests. Normally you do your tasting, then in the afternoon some sightseeing. That was my expectation for Spirits Selection, too. But it was nothing like that! I never expected what you organized and what we did! It was so great!"Simon Weiss - GermanyManaging Director and Founder of Idea Distillers GmhH
