How To Enter In The 2019 USA Spirits Ratings (SUPER EARLY BIRD PRICING ENDS: FEBRUARY 12, 2019 )

For a spirit to stand out in the USA Spirits Ratings it has to perform well in each of three separate judging criteria:

Quality. All spirits will be initially tasted blind to assess their quality and how drinkable they are they for consumers in their target area. 

Value for money. Spirits will then be assessed to see how much value for money they are offering their target spirits drinkers at that price point.

Packaging and design. As the majority of spirits is bought with our eyes, the USA Spirits Ratings will recognise spirits that stand out on shelf, or on a back bar, and will assess how well suited that design or packaging is to their target consumer group and at that price point.
