Monde Selection Double Grand 2021
AlcoNCP (Pty) Ltd is delighted to announce that it has been granted an exceptional Grand Gold Quality Award for its Ethanol and Light Spirits by the prestigious Quality Institute Monde Selection.
This award guarantees that the quality of the product has been tested and approved by a professional jury under rigorous evaluation procedures and strict criteria.
Celebrating 60 years of experience, Monde Selection has established itself as a leading authority in the quality evaluation of consumer products based on organoleptic and scientific parameters. The evaluation process is carried out by a jury of experts composed of internationally recognised oenologists, master sommeliers, oenology professors, chemical engineers, and specialized press columnists.
To guarantee an objective and comprehensive judgment, each of the jury members are asked to independently and without deliberation fill out a specific evaluation form including up to 30 parameters to establish the quality profile of the product. At Monde Selection, the evaluation goes far beyond regular tastings, as the Spirits & Liqueurs jury also takes time to share their knowledge and experience while carefully evaluating each individual product without resorting to any comparisons.
The current global situation did not stop over a thousand companies from 90 countries to submit more than 3,100 products in this year’s World Quality Selections.
“Receiving a Monde Selection Quality Award is an amazing accomplishment coveted by all producers and companies committed to the continuous quest for the best quality results. The blue and gold seal of quality is a powerful instrument to encourage producers all over the world to earn the trust of professional buyers and guide consumers in their purchasing choices,” comments Managing Director Dimitri Delloye.
About Monde Selection’s approach and Quality Awards “We use a similar rating system that hotels and restaurants are classified under. Products that fulfil the international quality standards in their category will be granted the award corresponding to their final assessment score,” states Managing Director, Louis Poot Baudier. The jury members are all external to the organisation and selected on the basis of their professional qualifications, competence, experience, and integrity.
When necessary, scientific analyses are entrusted to official laboratories accredited by the Belgian Federal Public Service to ensure that all the commercial claims made by a product are accurate and substantiated by scientific evidence.
Outstanding products are awarded a quality award based on the various evaluation criteria, with the final evaluation result representing an average of the scores granted by each jury member:
- Grand Gold: Final result between 90% and 100%
- Gold: Final result between 80% and 89%
- Silver: Final result between 70% and 79%
- Bronze: Final result between 60% and 69%
