The San Francisco Spirits Competition is the largest and most influential spirits competition and is followed closely by consumers and trade. The competition’s judging panel is made up of the most respected, experienced experts in the spirits industry from James-Beard honored mixologists to best-selling liquor authors. The panel recognized Stoli rigor in quality and consistency across its entire line, as well as the brand’s pioneering history in flavored vodka. With a Double Gold Award, The San Francisco Spirits Competition honored Stoli Premium as a classically styled, exceptionally smooth vodka with a clean, balanced taste. Additionally, Stoli Vanil received accolades for its elegant aromas of vanilla pod, crème anglaise and chocolate, as well as its creamy sweet palette.

“It is an honor for ten of our Stoli expressions to be awarded by the prestigious San Francisco Spirits Competition,” said Damian McKinney, CEO of Stoli Group. “We’re thrilled that the uncompromised quality we pour into each bottle is being recognized by a premier judging panel.” 

Stoli Group uses only the purest high-quality ingredients. The spirit is first blended with artesian well water, then filtered through active birch charcoal and quartz sand to create a liquid with unsurpassed smoothness. Stoli is distilled three times to produce a unique balance between character and smooth taste. All of Stoli flavored vodka starts with the exceptional quality and original character of Stoli Premium Vodka as its base.
