Padró & Co. adds to its accolades with two medals in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition
The San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC), the most prestigious spirits competition in the United States, has awarded silver and bronze medals to Padró & Co. Rojo Amargo and Padró & Co. Dorado Amargo Suave, respectively. Another two awards to add to the numerous accolades received by Padró & Co. during the brand’s first year on the market.
With these awards, the Bràfim winery’s vermouths reaffirm the widespread recognition already received from industry experts. The Dorado Amargo Suave recently achieved a top-ranking score in the Guía Peñín (94 points) and received a Silver Medal in this year’s Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition, whilst the Rojo Amargo was awarded Gold.
The two new medals bring even greater credit to the brand if we take into account the fact that over 2,100 different spirits were tasted this year and the competition received the largest number of entries ever in the 17 years it has been running. In addition, both of the vermouths sent in by Padró & Co. were awarded medals.
The panel of judges at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is known to be one of the most objective and rigorous in the world due to an extremely strict decision-making protocol: entries are evaluated in a blind tasting in which the panel has no information at all about the product or its price. Total impartiality on the part of the judges is thus ensured.
These two new medals are a further guarantee of the recognition from expert tasters of the exceptional quality found in the Padró & Co. vermouths.
