Slivovitz Tasting Results

Award winning Slivovitz

What we recommend, and why.

Each year, ISTA collects samples of Slivovitz from distillers large and small all over the world, and each year a panel of experienced tasters begins opening bottles, comparing color, aroma, taste, mouthfeel, follow, and other factors to discover the best Slivovitz produced in the world that year. In 2012, the official judging happened in September and October in Minnesota with popular judging results added in from the September 2012 Satellite Slivovitz Festivals in New York and Washington D.C.
