“It’s a perfect way to meet people in the industry and to discover what the main emerging trends are. It’s also great to see what’s not released yet,” says Oliver Eardley, the bartender at the Savoy Hotel. “I’ve been really impressed by the line-up of spirits we’ve tasted so far today, and I'm looking forward to discovering more as the day progresses!” Eardley was a part of the illustrious judges' panel at London Spirits Competition. What is it that sets the London Spirits Competition apart enough that judges too believe for it to be a solid opportunity to find more spirits to bring to the limelight?


The London Spirits Competition has been created exclusively by the Beverage Trade Network, global drinks event, services, business, and publishing group dedicated to helping drinks producers and brand owners get closer to the buyers, distributors, and retailers that can bring their products to market. To be an award winner you will need to have top-quality spirits that offer both the trade and the consumer great value for money, and you will need to look good and truly stand out on the shelf and on the back bar.

Be judged holistically

Quality is judged based on Appearance, Aroma, Body, Taste, and Aftertaste. Packaging is scored on the basis of Creative design, label quality, label details, back-bar appeal, store shelf appeal, and functionality (including shape, size, weight, and ease of pouring). The value for money is ascertained based on the quality offered for the price. Essentially,

Q (Quality Score) + Value Score (V) + Package Score (P) = London Spirits Competition Score.

Win big accolades
