International Wine & Spirit Competition in London

Founded in 1969, the IWSC is considered to be the most prestigious competition of its kind in the world. The awards given by the IWSC are believed to be among some of the highest honours in the wine & spirits industry.

Judging for the Competition is unique and has two stages. First part is a blind tasting by pre-poured, numbered glasses (judges never see a bottle). Tasting panels consist of over 300 fully experienced and qualified industry judges. In the second stage products which receive the top medals are subject to technical analysis before results are released. This crucial stage ensures that winners receive a complete validation.

9. Annual New York International Spirits Competition

The SIP Awards were created with a simple question in mind: what do the consumers think? The goal was to take account of the opinions of people who regularly appreciate a product, bringing them together to decide which brands deserve this prestigious award. Founders set out to create a fair competition by strategically choosing consumers from all demographics, conceiving an event that cuts to the core of public opinion as a starting point, rather than an afterthought, in branding and product development.

The quality of Sierakow Superior has been two times acknowledged by judges at the 9th Annual New York International Spirits Competition 2018. Sierakow Superior won a Silver Medal and also been announced as the Poland Vodka of the Year.
