WWSA 2019’s Blind Taste Test
During the Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards, 100 expert women judges rated different spirits during a blind taste test. Spirits were grouped by type and style of spirit, ageing, alcohol percentage and residual sugar.
Based on the jury ratings, a score was calculated for each of the participating spirits. In order to receive a medal, a certain minimum score had to be obtained.
Although the list of participants was very long, O’live GIN was 1 of the few gold medal winners at the WWSA 2019!
100 Women Can’t Be Wrong
The WWSA 2019 were judged by 100 of the world’s leading female buyers – that’s a whole lot of wine and spirits professionals!
The selected women buyers were important decision makers at distributors, importers and wholesalers in the wines and spirits industry, but also at major retailers and restaurant groups.
We are very excited the WWSA jury, consisting of leading spirits experts, awarded us with a gold medal and we look forward to surprise women around the world with the exquisite Mediterranean flavours of O’live GIN.
