249 Global Spirit Brands competing for high honours, Signature Vodka (MASV), a local Quebec company is awarded with distinguished honours and receives a PLATINUM Medal
The Spirits International Prestige Awards hosted its 2011 international spirits competition. Distillers rallied their highest quality spirits to compete for the coveted status as a consumer favorite. The competition, which enlists consumers to form its judging panel, featured 73 judges who participated in a blind tasting of 249 global spirit brands. Total scores reflected each judge's rating across three areas: aroma, taste and finish.
" The judging panel, composed of judges who have no industry affiliation and represent an accurate sample of the public who rate beverages all the time as they select a spirit on the weekend or evening for their own enjoyment.”
Signature Vodka (MASV), one of the few distinguished winners led the pack by earning the highest recognition among stiff competition. “ The focus on quality appeals to both smaller companies whose spirits are not yet available on a global distributorship-level, but are worthy of recognition on an international scale, and to consumers who are most concerned with taste. Creating a level playing field is the best way to reward true quality beverages and to introduce consumers to world class drinks which would otherwise go undiscovered in the shadows of dominant companies.”
