Once again, GAUTIER Cognac has been rightfully recognised as the ‘Best Cognac’ at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
The San Francisco World Spirits Competition has become the most respected and influential spirits competition in the world since its introduction in the year 2000. A SFWSC medal is the most reliable indication of a spirit’s excellence, and medal-worthy spirits are recognised globally by both trade and consumers as being the best the industry has to offer.
This year, GAUTIER has proudly achieved:
· A Double Gold in “Best Cognac” and “Best in Class Brandy” (meaning that it has been recognized as the best within the whole Brandy category including Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados and other Brandies) for GAUTIER Extra 1755
· Double Gold and “Best VSOP” award for GAUTIER VSOP
· Double Gold medal for GAUTIER Pinar Del Rio
· Double Gold for GAUTIER Tradition Rare
· Silver Medal for GAUTIER XO
· Silver Medal for GAUTIER VS
The Double Gold designation is awarded to the very few entries that receive Gold medal ratings by all members of the judging panel. These are among the finest products in the world.
It’s not just the SFWSC Awards that have recognised the greatness of GAUTIER – Maison Gautier VS Cognac and Maison Gautier VSOP Cognac were both rated excellent and highly recommended by the 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge Awards* (USC), with each being given an overall score of 94 out of 100.
“It is an absolute honour for GAUTIER to be recognised as the ‘Best Cognac’ yet again.” says Kevin Baker, Global Travel Retail Director of Marie Brizard Wine & Spirits. “It really is a testament to the hard work of our small team in Aigre, who, year in, year out, demonstrate their craft by making cognac of the very highest quality. This continued recognition of the excellence of Gautier Cognac, has helped fuel a real surge in popularity in recent years, and particularly since its packaging relaunch in 2016.
“We have other Awards news, too. Marie Brizard Parfait Amour Liqueur was given the ‘Ultimate Recommendation’ by USC*, described as ‘extraordinary’ with a score of 95.”
