After spirits were incorporated into the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles – CMB in 1999, they rapidly gained traction. The resounding success of the competition and consequential organisational challenges prompted CMB organisers to separate the two competitions in 2013. Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is now a fully-fledged event of international scope.
With backing from CMB, Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has become THE international event rewarding spirits from across the globe. Whiskies, Cognacs, brandies, rums, vodkas, gins, piscos, grappas, baijius and tequilas, amongst other spirits, are assessed and classified by a panel of internationally renowned experts.
After Chile in 2017, Bulgaria in 2018, China in 2019, and Brussels in 2020 and 2021, Spirits Selection is back on the road! The French overseas department Guadeloupe will be hosting the 23rd competition from the 20 to 23rd of June 2022, offering a unique opportunity for the West Indies’ archipelago to showcase its time-honoured expertise in distilling sugar cane. The registration site will be open from January 10, 2022.
