Throughout judging, each of our experts will individually score every spirit they sample. This means after we’ve announced our results, we can share the spirits our judges rate the highest.
Today is the turn of Barry McCaughley. Barry has judged with the IWSC for over 10 years and specialises in agave and Asian spirits including Shochu. He has many strings to his bow, including as a Restaurateur, Food & Beverage Development Consultant, business owner and a restaurant and bar start up specialist.
He joined us for several judging days this year, including for Gin, Liqueurs and Brandies. Discover his top picks below.
