We are pleased to inform you that our E. León Jimenes rum has been awarded with the Double Gold Medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition considerer one of the most reputable competitions in the world of spirits.
The Double Gold designation is awarded to the very few entries that receive gold medals by all members of the distinguished tasting panel, this means that we can consider our rum as one of the best products in the world.
Between 1,500 – 2,500 spirits usually attend this competition and no more than 10 Double Gold are awarded in the contest (in its different categories).
“It is an enormous success to have obtained this recognition because it places us on the international scene in the face of the consumer, but also for the professional who we consider can appreciate in its worth a recognition like this”, says Guillermo León, President of La Aurora Cigar Factory.
According to spirits consultant VP of Sales & Operations at PF Importers, Tim Basham, “the Double Gold award at SFWSC is a prestigious honor and true recognition of what we already believe – that E. León Jimenes Rum is a high quality, delicious spirit, and certainly one of the best in the world.
E. León Jimenes is a unique super Premium distillate that has a very limited annual production. The rum is a blend of different reserve rums aged in virgin American Oak barrels for eight years, finished with an extra aging of two years in French Oak Tuns. Featuring flavor notes of honey, red fruits, vanilla and cocoa, this is a powerful and delicious spirit. This year is the first time the company entered the World Spirits Competition.
