Every Gin That Won a Double Gold Medal at the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) is highly regarded in the drinks industry, with almost every brand striving to earn a top-tier medal. Last week, the SFWSC medals were announced, and we’ve compiled a list of the gin brands (and one genever brand) that achieved Double Gold medals.

By judging each spirit blindly to eliminate bias, experienced and knowledgeable spirits critics award medals from Bronze to Silver and Gold, with Gold medals going to exceptional spirits that set the standard for their category. Double Gold medals, however, are awarded to spirits that receive a Gold rating from every member of the judging panel, making it an even more distinguished honor. The only rating higher than Double Gold is the Platinum medal, awarded to brands that have received Double Gold medals for three consecutive years.

While Double Gold is a prestigious honor, it’s worth noting that many such medals are given out each year, and, in our opinion, consumers should still consider seeking reviews from tough critics than solely relying on awards.
