St. Kilian Distillers Take Home Spirit Of The Year, Whisky Of The Year, And Distillery Of The Year At 2020 London Spirits Competition

St. Kilian Distillers won the day at the 2020 London Spirits Competition. The German spirits makers took home the awards for Whisky of the Year, Spirit of the Year, and Distillery of the Year. St. Kilian Signature Edition FOUR garnered the highest praise from critics, scoring 97 points on its way to victory.

The third edition of the annual international spirits competition was organized by Beverage Trade Network and found bartenders and spirits buyers tasting over 1000 bottles from around the globe. The event took place in London on July 7-8 and spirits were judged on the basis of three primary criteria – quality, value, and packaging – and then scored on a 100-point scale.

Elsewhere in the competition, Fary Lochan Danish Single Malt Whisky and Substation 41 Rum finished tied for second, with each spirit scoring 96 points. Substation 41 took home the award for Rum of the Year, while another Australian bottle, Barossa Distilling Barrel Aged Gin, took home Gin of the Year.
