Enter your spirits in the 8th Annual Judging of Craft American Spirits
The first spirits judging devoted to artisan American Spirits is now in its eighth year. This judging not only recognizes the best quality distilled spirits in the craft movement, it provides vital feedback via tasting notes from the judges to the distillers to help improve the quality of products.
Registration for 2014 Closed
Before the judging begins, all spirits are received by a member distillery and put in a secure area. Boxes remain sealed upon arrival until the week prior to judging. The judging team opens the boxes to sort the spirits by class before being moving them to the judging venue.
The American Distilling Institute will judge artisan American gins, rums, fruit infusions, brandies, moonshines and whiskies. Select judges will perform a blind tasting of spirits submitted.
