Home » The Results Are In: Chaco Flaco’s Award-Winning Recipes Recognized Across Four Categories in San Francisco World Spirits Competition

Chaco Flaco is founded by Founder/Head Mixologist Chuck Moore (a.k.a. “Chaco Flaco”) and his love of inventing unique twists on classic cocktails that use fresh ingredients to share with close friends and family but are now shared with the masses. And while the Chaco Flaco team loves to spread the word about our delicious, premium hand-crafted canned cocktails, we love it even more when others recognize the passion and quality of our work!

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the largest spirits-judging competition in the world and is the oldest competition in North America. Each year since its conception, a total of 70 judges are drawn from all over the world to taste, evaluate, and award approximately 5,000 spirits over a two-week period. We are elated to announce that five of our Chaco Flaco products were chosen as award winners across four different categories in the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition!
