28/10/2021 In a bid to raise the bar year after year and offer increased value to competition entrants, the Bartender Spirits Awards has introduced a beneficial feature for its entrants

Bartender Spirits Awards entrants will be able to submit cocktails for their spirit brands directly from the entry zone.

The competition prides itself on being one step ahead by thinking like the consumers who are potential buyers for the top award-winning spirits at the event. In doing so they are creating a bridge to connect brands with consumers in increased ways. The competition organizers constantly strive to listen and adapt its offer to give producers, suppliers and importers clear and added benefits to enter their spirits.

Not only will it help the consumers but will also help bartenders and mixologists to check cocktails of winning products which they can implement in their bars when they stock the winning products.
