2019 Spirits Judging Committee

WHAT ARE JUDGING COMMITTEES?

Tasked with leading each of the judging days, the IWSC Judging Committees are at the forefront of the judging process.

There are two Judging Committees in the IWSC: the Wine Judging Committee and the Spirit Judging Committee, led by Philip Goodband MW and Charles Maxwell respectively. The committees oversee all panel chairs and judges, and re-taste every Gold medal-winning wine or spirit for final endorsement.
