VOTING PROCESS

Bartender Spirits Awards will recognize, encourage, promote and celebrate excellence in the U.S. drinks industry. 

EACH SPIRIT BRAND WILL BE SCORED BASED ON:

Mixability

Balance and Versatility

Taste, Mouthfeel, and Finish

Package

Price

STEP 1: BLIND TASTING

Blind tasting samples are presented by category based on their style and origin. Each spirit brand is reviewed on the basis of mixability; balance and versatility; taste, mouthfeel, and finish. Top bartenders within the industry review all blind tasting samples, ensuring that every entrant receives unbiased consideration by top influencers within the industry.

STEP 2: PRICE SCORE EVALUATION

The price score creates a strong reference tool for the bar industry and consumers. Following the blind tasting, judges are presented with the price of the spirit to analyze the price score. The objective is to understand how a particular spirit is priced vis-à-vis its peers. In today’s competitive marketplace, relative value is a very important consideration.

STEP 3: PACKAGING EVALUATION

In the final assessment for packaging, judges are asked to evaluate bottles by their creative design, back-bar appeal, and functionality (including shape, size, weight, and ease of pouring).

JUDGING PANEL

The judging panel of the Bartender Spirits Awards will consist entirely of top bartenders at U.S. restaurants, bars, pubs, and clubs. In order to be selected as a judge, bartenders need to provide evidence of their expertise within the on-premise industry. In some cases, these bartenders may also be cocktail consultants for on-premise establishments or play an important buying role for their on-premise establishment.

Submissions are now open for the 2020 Bartender Spirits Awards. Top 100 Spirits at the Bartender Spirits Awards will make the 2020 USA's Top 100 On-Premise spirits which will be marketed to restaurants and on-premise buyers of USA.
