Wine and spirits competitionFrom February 2009 newsletter
Every year the annual International Wine and Spirits Competition attracts entries from around the world.Through Corkwise, Campden BRI is proud to be involved in this event as Geoff Taylor, our wine consultant, explains:
"This year´s event saw over 10,000 participants in the competition. Product categories range from wines, champagnes and fortified wines through to whiskies and all varieties of spirits.The products are assessed for their quality and flavour by panels of expert judges.The winners from these judging panels are then subjected to a further series of chemical analyses in our laboratories, to check for quality and potential faults. Only those that pass both tests are awarded the coveted gold and silver medals, which are announced at a spectacular banquet in London - accompanied, naturally, by some excellent wines."
