SF World Spirits Competition

So, I did a little research, and it seems that I am the only media person who has ever covered the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Check out the story in the next issue of Drink Me Magazine. I took a look behind-the-scenes at the premier spirits competition, and they just released the in-front-of-the-scenes results. It’s worth a gander, just to find some new bottles worth trying and some affordable high-quality spirits.

The best of the best are posted below, and if you want to see the full list, click back in the middle of this line where I linked on the words “full list.”

  1. I like that the prices are listed as well. It seems that you can get the “Best of” something starting at a little over $20. Not bad! 🙂
