They talk about the Spirits Selection competition

I have attended many competitions and the Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is by far and away the best. Everything from the way we tasted a ‘warm up’ spirit each morning, to the smooth delivery of the spirits, to the way the spirits were scored was highly immersive. I was in awe of my fellow judges and learned so much. And I now consider a double gold from Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles as the highest accolade in the industry.

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!
