International Spirits Challenge Judging – 2020

One of the most fun days I’ve had with Casa Agave is being a judge in this years International Spirits Challenge, which is one of if not the most authoritative, respected and influential spirits competitions in the world. Read all about them here: International Spirits Challenge

What a day!

We, a group of 6 agave specialists, tried and tasted over 70 different agave spirits and I’m tremendously excited to find out which brands we awarded Silver and Gold medals to.

Winning an ISC award is such a huge achievement for anyone in the spirits business as it truly shows how great the product is.

We scrupulously tasted each one and discussed each independently whether they would or wouldn’t deserve (in our professional and unbiased opinions) an award.

It was incredible! I never thought that out of over 70 agave spirits we would give out an award to 90%! It goes to show that the Tequila and Mezcal (and Bacanora!) categories are booming with great brands and it won’t slow down!

Here’s to trying many more agave spirits and let them all be delicious! Salud!
