SAN DIEGO SPIRITS FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL SPIRITS COMPETITION

San Diego, CA – September 16, 2019

The 2019 San Diego Spirits Festival International Spirits Competition had one of the toughest fields to date with great entries from both the USA and internationally, all spirits were judged on their individual merits and attributes. Blue Marble Cocktails adds a Double Gold to their already expansive medal line up.

The 2019 bottle judging competition was well supported with over 228 from craft distilleries, American merchant bottlers, and large familiar labels. Brands were divided into respective categories as determined by spirit type or style, including whiskey, bourbon, rum, gin, vodka, and flavored vodka. Judges were divided into panels and participated in blind tastings of the spirits, using their knowledge and expertise to analyze and scrutinize the participants’ aromas and flavors.

All samples were covered and tasted in the NEAT glass which has been designed to dissipate alcohol and magnify aromas, the NEAT glass is the official judging and tasting glass of the San Diego Spirits Festival International Competition All tastings were held blind, and the integrity of the competition was safe guarded by sample preparation in a restricted room away from the judging area, with strict adherence to a single specific category for each flight.

The integrity of San Diego Spirits Festival International Spirits Competition starts with the quality and expertise of the Esteemed Judges, who have a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds and this facilitates a true, and unbiased quality of judging process.

“The quality of spirits entered this year was exceptional” said George Manska inventor of the NEAT tasting Glass and the official Advisory Council for the San Diego Spirits Festival. In total, 138 Medals were awarded across all categories; only 16 Double Gold medals were awarded this year. Absolutely no automatic awards were given. Every medal awarded was won against a field of competitors and stood on its own individual merits.

Alan Miller, CEO and founder of Blue Marble Cocktails stated, “We are honored that out of all the entries Blue Marble Cocktails won a Double Gold at this year’s San Diego Spirits Festival. We set out to make amazing cocktails that are not only all-natural, but ultra-premium and packaged in an aluminum can to help keep the blue marble blue. Winning awards like this means the world to our family owned and operated business and our entire team that makes up the Blue Marble family.”
The winning brands were announced at the 11th Annual San Diego Spirits Festival which was held on August 24-25 at the Port Pavilion Broadway Pier and brought together industry insiders and cocktail consumers for a weekend of community, discovery and education.
