JUST A FEW SIMPLE STEPS TO ENTER
Every year, hundreds of quality-driven spirit brands enter their products in the most competitive spirit competition in the world. Let your spirit do the talking and earn its accolades from unbiased consumers.
THE CONSUMER VOTES
Unfiltered Consumer Feedback
Your spirit will be judged by consumers, not industry insiders, brand owners, or representatives. Getting unbiased evaluations and feedback from people who drink and purchase spirits is a unique opportunity to find out exactly how your product resonates with the public in a professional setting.
Curated Judging Panel
We carefully select a diverse judging panel based on demographic information to capture the opinion of the general public. Industry experts, brand owners, or spirit industry affiliates are barred from participating in our judging panel with no exceptions
No other spirit competition provides a fair representation of your target consumers nor does any panel come close to the number of judges that SIP offers. Take a closer look at our Judges Statistics to see the SIP Awards difference.
Systematic Evaluation to Ensure Accuracy
The SIP Awards uses a proprietary algorithm to account for variability in palate consistency and weigh scores differently according to each judge’s level of consistency. This systematic process ensures that your scores and feedback are accurate and reliable.
Boost Sales in the Spotlight
When you prove the quality of your spirit in front of a large number of consumers at the SIP Awards, we’ll let our 23,000+ followers know and feature your spirit on our website indefinitely. Our follower base consists of consumers, distributors, importers, and investors. When you’ve worked hard on crafting your spirit, the world deserves to know.
Grow Your Consumer Base
SIP Awards participants will be invited to showcase their spirit at exclusive SIP Awards formal events and tastings throughout the year. We’ve done the work of gathering people who are excited to find their next favorite spirit so that all you need to do is show up.
