With summer temperatures of almost 40 degrees Celsius, the jury of international spirits experts was honored to devote themselves to the supreme disciplines of whisk(e)y, rum, vodka, grain and some other spirits categories in the air-conditioned tasting halls of Meininger publishing house. More than 600 products were tasted and evaluated blindly over two days. The best 185 won one of the coveted medals – including 5x Grand Gold, 160x Gold and 18x Silver.

Whisk(e)y and Rum

The final theme tasting of the year at Meininger's International Spirits Award was dominated by the large categories Whisk(e)y and Rum, which accounted for the majority of the samples submitted. In both categories, an impressive variety could be observed, which was expressed in origin, style or cask finishes. What they all had in common, however, was a consistently high level of quality.

But also in other spirits genres such as vodka, grain or aquavit, outstanding products stood out, which can rightly be seen as a benchmark for their category.

Some of the award-winning products can also be tasted at Finest Spirits from 2 to 4 September 2022.
