International Spirits Challenge: the results

15 July, 2014

Crème de Cassis de Dijon was named Supreme Champion at the International Spirits Challenge awards ceremony last night at the Honorable Artillery Company in London.

The liqueur beat 30 other trophy winners to take the title for a second year running at the ISC, Drinks International's tasting competition, which is now in its nineteenth year.

The ISC judges awarded a total of 34 trophies – 10 more than last year – at blind tastings of over 1,000 entries.
 
Suntory was awarded Distiller of the Year for a third year running. The distiller took home a total of eight golds and a trophy, beating its previous haul of six gold medals.

Suntory scooped 22 medals in the whisky category – nine golds and one trophy. A gold medal and trophy was awarded in the vodka category for Suntory’s Ao brand.  

Individual Distillery of the Year went to Château du Tariquet. The Gascony chateau received seven honours at the International Spirits Challenge 2014, including a gold and trophy for Blanche Armagnac.
