Making a great spirit takes a lot of work. Years of practice and an almost meditative understanding of the discipline shape a spirit after intense trial and error. Great spirits deserve a great audience that appreciates its layers and complexities. It deserves to be seen across shelves on-premise and get to participate in the making of great memories. It deserves to be seen and that sometimes becomes one of the biggest challenges to encounter. The solution often lies in competitions and awards that bring great spirits into the limelight.


The Bartender Spirits Awards 2022 are just around the corner. This celebrated award helps spirits and distilleries be noticed and become a favorite choice for bars, restaurants, clubs and on-premise establishments within the United States. The impact of being awarded the Bartender Spirits Awards medal goes a long, long way. 

Brand Awareness is one of the key takeaways from the Bartender Spirits Awards. The awards go out of their way to help great spirits be discovered by getting their spirits brands tasted and reviewed by an illustrious judges panel. This panel comprises leading Bartenders, Beverage Directors, and on-premise restaurant buyers in the USA. These judges allot the spirits a score and winning spirits can display this score with pride.

The judging metrics for the Bartender Spirits Awards are:

M (Mixability Score) + B (Balance and Versatility) + T ((Taste, Mouthfeel and Finish) Score) + Package Score (P) + Value Score (V) = Bartenders Spirits Awards Final Score.

This metric is applied in three steps where Step 1 entails Blind Tasting, Step 2 involves Price Score Evaluation, and Step 3 focuses on Packaging Evaluation.

An award that tests a spirit’s mettle to rigorous standards goes on to be the impetus to its growth. This is evident in the sweeping victory of Barr Hill Gin and Uncle Nearest Whiskey at the Bartender Spirits Awards. The 2021 Bartender Spirits Awards saw Uncle Nearest winning one Double Gold Medal, three Silver Medals, Spirit of the Year 2021, Distillery of the Year 2021, World Whiskey of the Year 2021, and World Whisky Producer Of The Year 2021.
