About The Masters

Launched in 2008, The Global Spirits Masters rates and rewards excellence in spirits production, giving brands key differentiation in a crowded market.

Judging is divided into 14 separate competitions to ensure each spirit category is given the utmost attention by specialised judges. Entry forms with relevant categories can be found here.

The Global Spirits Masters is unique in its exclusive use of completely independent expert judges, including journalists, retail buyers, bartenders and educators. As such, entrants can rest assured that their product has been assessed constructively and without bias by our panels of professionals. Judges can award Silver, Gold and Master medals, as well as additional trophies for outstanding excellence.

The results of each competition are published in The Spirits Business magazine, which with its monthly global circulation of 13,000 copies, guarantees that entrants’ medal wins are visible to a truly international and industry-focused audience.

In addition, the results are also posted on www.thespiritsbusiness.com, which attracts more than 325,000 visitors from almost 150 countries on a monthly basis.
