Competition entry submitted by Waitrose Plc.


'A gold medal is a serious award, which essentially describes a world-class product.

There are some product categories that do not really lend themselves to this accolade: basic neutral table wines for example. In other words, there is a judging context of global quality in the back of judges' minds'

David Wrigley MW, Chair of the Competition's Technical and Judging Committee, and Director of the WSET.

Note: Only one 'Gold Medal' in the spirits category was won by an Irish product in the 2003 International Wine & Spirit Competition, being Knockeen Hills.
