The Melbourne International Spirits Competition

The_Melbourne_International_Spirits_Competition

The Melbourne International Spirits Competition is the first major international spirits competition with TRADE ONLY judges.

The judges are comprised of: buyers from the top retail stores, restaurant owners, cocktail bars, hotel beverage directors, distributors and importers. Unlike other spirits competitions, these judges have purchasing power and the ability to make a direct impact on brand sales.

The spirits industry is seeking a TRADE ONLY blind judging panel spirits competition to be held in Melbourne. The retail store buyer, sommelier, restaurant beverage director, hotelier, distributor and importer will be our judges. These judges whose livelihood rely upon their skill set truly know what the consumer wants as they receive on a daily basis the feedback from the consumer of what is good and what will sell at what price.

The competition is open to all commercially produced spirits from around the world. You may submit if you are not currently being sold in Australia or the Melbourne Market.
