America's first pisco brand from the first female pisco liquor owner in Chilean history was one of eight entries to be singled out with a gold medal in this category.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Catan Pisco, America's first pisco brand, announces it has won a gold medal in the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). This was the brand's initial entry into the competition, garnering one of eight pisco liquors gold or higher medals.

As one of the oldest and largest competitions of its kind, the SFWSC is recognized internationally as the premier competition recognizing the best liquors globally, a universal indicator of superior quality and craftsmanship.

A gold medal is one of the most prestigious marks a label can receive, especially as a new entry. In this year's competition, 21 entries were made by other pisco labels, with only nine classified as Chilean pisco. Catan Pisco sets the standard for other Chilean pisco liquors, crafting a spirit distilled from 100% grapes with the versatility of vodka and the upscale aromas and complexity of premium tequila.

"It's an honor to win any medal, but this particular one is significant and encouraging," said Catalina Gaete-Bentz, Catan Pisco's founder and first female pisco owner in Chilean history. "It shows consumers and markets abroad and here at home that we have the quality and experience they're looking for in pisco. I feel empowered to continue innovating and being a much-needed female voice in the spirits industry."

Since launching in 2018, Catan Pisco has gained worldwide recognition as a superior pisco brand. Within its first year, it won double gold medals and Best in Show at the 2019 San Diego Spirits Festival. Receiving these medals and reaching major milestones supports Catan Pisco's goal to craft an elevated and unique drink experience while encouraging a new way to celebrate and bring people together, especially in America, where consumers tend to focus on familiar brands.

"Winning Gold at our first entry to SFWSC is a sign that pisco is very much a relevant category in the industry and further validates that the American palate is ready to welcome pisco into their bars and homes." from a new innovative way to celebrate accomplishments, big and small alike."

Catan Pisco will be at this year's San Diego Spirits Festival. The event will take place Sept. 24 and 25 at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla, Calif. For more information on the award-winning brand, visit
