General Information

Judging – March 18-19, 2024 – Winners Announced – April 10, 2024

The London Spirits Competition reviews brands in the same way that consumers do: by what they taste like; what the bottle or design looks like; and how much it costs. Any drinks competition relies on two things: the quality of the products that are entered; and the respect of the expertise of the judges tasked with picking out the winners. The London Spirits Competition has focused on both as each year it builds its reputation around the world amongst the leading distillers, brand owners and drinks distributors.

The judging for the competition is broken down into three key areas: Quality; Value; and Packaging and design.

A score is given by judges for each criteria which together creates the London Spirits Competition score on which the medal awarded is given.
