These three Chilean piscos are considered the best in the world

PLOVDIV – During the Spirits Selection Award 2018 in Bulgaria, three Chilean piscos have been awarded with a Golden Medal. Every year, in every category, liquors and spirits from all around the world are being judged and awarded. For most pisco lovers, this years winners couldn´t have come as a surprise – all come from the Valle de Elqui.

Pisco, the Chilean (or Peruvian) national drink has given so many people great nights, good laughs and heavy headaches. Mostly drunk in a piscola or a pisco sour, and a guarantee for a fun night out. And Chile is a good country to drink your pisco – because this week several Chilean piscos were awarded with golden and silver medals during the Spirits Selection Award 2018, organized by the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

In the category Pisco, the Chilean winning piscos all came from the Valle de Elqui: Alto del Carmen Reservado, Mistral Nobel and Espíritu del Elqui won a golden medal. Chilean piscos Bou Barroeta Luxtelle, Pisco Aba 2016, Pisco Bauzá Anniversary 40 °, Pisco Waqar and Viña Armidita Pisco 2017 all won a silver medal.

Apart from the medals, the judges at the Spirits Selection also handed out a Spirits Selection 2018 Revelation Trophy to four spirits. All these trophies were handed out after a blind-tasting and had to be modern and innovative in their presentation and taste. One Chilean pisco was among those spirits who received a trophy: Pisco Tres Erres (1-12 months).
