Larusée Verte awarded Gold in San Francisco

Larusée Verte finds gold in California

San Francisco World Spirit Competition Gold AwardReceiving a gold medal in California is exceptional! The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is not one of the most influential competitions without reason. Over the years, they have acquired an exceptional reputation with professionals and consumers because of their commitment to three founding principles:


Founded in 2000, the SFWSC is one of the oldest competitions of this type. With almost two decades of experience, the SFWSC has become a true masterpiece of competition, combining passion and professionalism.


Throughout their judgment process, they emphasize integrity and impartiality. Their blind tasting process ensures that each product is judged fairly and on an equal footing.


With almost 20 years of experience, the SFWSC has become one of the most respected spirit competitions in the world, thanks in large part to their judges. Each of them having a distinct history and a sharp palate, these seasoned experts are one of the reasons why an SFWSC medal indicates the highest level of quality.

The 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition was held at the Nikko Hotel in San Francisco from April 13 to 15. The 2018 competition was another record year, with 2,469 spirits from around the world, up 11% from 2017’s competition.

Larusée is pleased to announce a new breathtaking result for the 2018 competition with a new Gold medal for Larusée Verte.

Congratulations to Jean-Pierre Candaux, our master distiller!
