07/06/2022 Det Norske Brenneri's Lyng Norwegian Botanical Gin earned the spirit of the year award at the 2022 Bartender Spirits Awards.

The Bartender Spirits Awards are a platform for underrated spirits to grab the spotlight. The awards go out of their way to help great spirits be discovered by getting their spirits brands tasted and reviewed by an illustrious judges panel. This panel comprises leading Bartenders, Beverage Directors, and on-premise restaurant buyers in the USA. Winners from the Bartender Spirits Awards are celebrated and loved even beyond the US on-premise industry.  “We really wanted a way to recognize those spirits that would be a great addition to any bar and that are completely on-trend in terms of packaging and price,” said Sid Patel, Founder, and CEO of Beverage Trade Network.

The winning spirits are broadcast around the world. Medal winners are included in the Bartenders Spirits TOP 100 Spirits Guide accessed by Buyers, Bar Managers, Bartenders, and Brands and is distributed to over 50000+ trade professionals across the United States. Digital certificates and Medal stickers are provided to all the winners. They can be used across different Brand Support Tools as well as Point of Sale processes such as Brand Deck, Sell Sheet, Shelf Talkers, Case Cards, Bottle Neckers, and more.
