Why take part ?
An extremely stringent judging process
The panel consists of carefully selected experts from all over the world. Their task is to award medals to the best entries.
+ 30 years expertise
The competition is managed by communications agency Vinopres with a more than 30 years’ expertise in wine, spirits and beer competitions.
A team of specialists
Checks arrivals of spirits entries and the official accompanying documents, corrects any possible errors and turns down samples that do not comply with the rules.
Optimal tasting conditions
The organizers guarantee optimal tasting conditions for the judges. The judging panels are seated in a properly aired, well-lit and quiet hall where entry is prohibited to anybody not directly involved in the tasting sessions.
Diversity of the judges
The organizers are mindful to ensure there are judges of different geographical backgrounds in each panel
Glasses are filled in the preparation hall out of the judges’ sight. Judges never see the bottles. Anonymity is a fundamental principle of the competition
No more than 35 samples per day
Each tasting includes no more than thirty-five samples per day
The organizers can conduct subsequent checks on award-winning entries after the competition, by comparing a selection of those products with an anonymously-bought sample from the same batch. A certified laboratory (‘COFRAC’ French standards) is in charge of the comparative analysis. The checks are designed to ensure consumers the highest level of satisfaction from spirits endorsed by a ‘Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial’ award
Each spirit is assessed using a highly sophisticated and innovative sensorial evaluation process
The competition is recognized by the European Economic Community
