World Spirits Award 2022:
The WSA presentation of the “crown jewels”: 13 x Awards, 13 x Spirits of the Year and 6 x Distilleries of the Year
The “World Spirits Award” is considered by many spirits enthusiasts and producers as the unofficial world championship within the sector. “We have been working with the utmost care towards this position in the market for over two decades with constant fine tuning of quality and innovations.”
The Award Celebration took place in Bad Kleinkirchheim in Austria on 18th and 19th March, after it had to be cancelled in the two previous years due to COVID. On 18th March a distillery tour through Carinthia (Pfau, Jesche and WOB) was held, and on 19th March the award ceremony took place in Nockln, the Brunnach mountain station of the Bad Kleinkirchheim cable cars.
Despite the difficult COVID times, the WSA 2022 can once again boast a “full house”, which the mastermind Wolfram Ortner and his team are very proud of and grateful for. One of the best qualified juries in the world has tasted 450 samples from 120 distilleries this year and rigorously but fairly evaluated them according to WSA definitions with their high level of expertise. The best of the best were distinguished with the coveted “World Spirits Awards”.
