Winning a Bartender Spirits Award clearly demonstrates the trade how well the spirits will be perceived in the on-premise market and will give the trade a very good indicator to stock that brand. 

The aim of the Bartender Spirits Awards competition is to provide independent and honest reviews for brands targeting the U.S. bar trade. The judging panel consists of some of the most renowned names in the U.S. bar industry, all of them with extensive expertise within the on-premise industry. The result will be a relevant and practical source of reference for bartenders, bar managers, bar owners and other industry professionals when making purchasing decisions for their establishments.
