The SIP Awards is the only international spirits competition leveling the playing field for established brands and newcomers alike by enlisting consumers as judges.
We remain steadfast in our goal of providing one of the most reliable measures of beverage quality rating in the world. The SIP Awards is the only international spirits competition that delivers the opinions, thoughts and voices of the consumers to the general public.
As a judge you will evaluate a select group of 30+ spirits from around the world. Hor d’oeuvres will be served throughout the event.
We are looking for knowledgeable consumers to join our tasting panel of judges for our upcoming competition on April 27th, 2014 at the luxurious St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort located along the pristine shores of the Pacific Ocean in Dana Point, California. With views like none other and amenities fit for a king, this resort has been crowned with the Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond Award, and delivers an experience beyond expectation.
