Austin based Tequila 512 won a double gold medal and the highly coveted "Best in Show" award at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The highly regarded competition, now in its 15th year, is the most influential and respected spirits competition in the world.

In order to receive a double gold medal, the panel of expert judges must unanimously agree a product is superior to all others. "Best in Show" winners are then selected from the double gold winners once all 41 expert judges unanimously agree on the best spirit in each category. All tastings are done through a blind tasting process with customized glassware.

"We have always been a bellwether for trends in spirits consumption and growth. Our caliber of judges, our international reputation and professional organization of the competition helps the marketplace be assured of tremendous quality control and opportunities," says competition director and spirits guru Anthony Dias Blue.
