The 2nd Annual NYISC Took Place on October 16th in New York City

In its 2nd year, the New York International Spirits Competition (“NYISC”) was held at 3 West Club on October 16th to taste, evaluate and judge over 300 of the world’s best–distilled spirits – a 65% increase from last years submissions. Over 30 countries submitted their brands to be critiqued by a hand-selected panel of A-List and key TRADE ONLY judges – buyers, retail storeowners, restaurant/bar proprietors, distributors and importers – those that have the unique ability to make a direct impact on sales.

“This year’s significant increase in submissions is a clear sign that the industry truly recognizes and appreciates NYISC’s overall philosophy of judging for real sales impact,” says Adam Levy, Founder of the NYISC. ”While other renowned competitions prize up to 85% of entrants with awards, the discerning panel and ethos of the NYISC is to honor the brands that are most deserving among their peers. This year, NYISC prized only 40% of its entrants.

The Judges awarded only 1 Double Gold Medal,14 Gold Medals, 46 Silver Medals and 61 Bronze Medals.
