London Drinks Trade Can Now Source Winning Spirits For Their Bars, Hotels and Stores

29/07/2020

London Spirits Competition winners are the spirits that consumers can buy with confidence as they offer a perfect balance of quality, price and package.

The London Spirits Competition was introduced to be different from any other major spirits awards. It did not just want to do more of the same. But instead look at spirits through the eyes of the consumer and how they buy and choose which spirits to buy. Of course, the quality of the spirits is ultimately what will determine whether a consumer comes back to buy another bottle, but to do so first it needs to sell itself through its design, packaging and value for money.

All three are the key criteria by which all spirits in the London spirits Competition are judged meaning any of the medal winners know they have a spirit they can rightly take to the market with the knowledge it works on all three consumer levels.

The results of the third London Spirits Competition also reflected the quality and innovation that is taking place all over the world.

London Spirits Competition winners are the spirits that consumers can buy with confidence as they offer a perfect balance of quality, price and package.

Here are the winners that London trade buyers can now taste and get in their businesses as they reopen in the covid economy. These brands are serious about building and understand the support needed to build a brand.
