The Results Are In! Whiskey Reigns Supreme at 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

The 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition held its 15th annual event March 19-22 and it proved even more popular than ever. Up seven percent from last year, the competition saw 1,580 submissions from 41 states and 66 countries (covering 90 different spirit classifications). Last year’s results reflected an uprising in popularity for American Craft Whiskey, Gin and Single Malt Scotch, and this year’s outcome shows an even bigger rise for those categories. 

“We have always been a bellwether for trends in spirits consumption and growth. Our caliber of judges, our international reputation and professional organization of the competition helps the marketplace be assured of tremendous quality control and opportunities,” says competition director and spirits guru Anthony Dias Blue. “Over the last 15 years as we’ve witnessed this explosive growth in spirits, we also note that the further sub-categorization of aging and types of spirits is proliferating. We are in an exciting time in the beverage business.”
