Judging criteria

To win a London Spirits Competition award you will need to score highly in all three areas of our judging criteria. You might have outstanding quality spirits, but if the price and packaging are not right then you don’t, in commercial terms, have a winning spirits brand. And you will not be recognized by the London Spirits Competition. That is why the London Spirits Competition will be decided based on the following judging formula making it a more relevant global spirits competition:

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

A separate weighted score will be given for each of the three parts of the judging process (Quality gets twice the weight. The scores will be calculated with other judges for the same product on the team to give a final score from which individual prizes will be awarded.

Quality Score: will be marked out of 100

Value Score: will be marked out of 100

Package Score: will be marked out of 100
