2013 World Best Cognac, Louis-Royer VSOP Force 53

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is regarded as the most respected spirits competition in the world. The Competition was the first comprehensive, international spirits judging ever held in the United States on an annual basis. Products are evaluated by top spirits professionals and are judged in a blind, consensual procedure ensuring competitive integrity and making this annual competition the most reputable and recognized competition in the spirits industry.

The 2014 Competition took place on March 20th through the 23rd at the Hotel Nikko in downtown San Francisco.
