The 7th Annual NYISC Took Place on October 23rd, 2016 in New York City

The New York International Spirits Competition is excited to announce the winners of the 7th Annual NYISC, held in October 2016 in the heart of New York City. Close to 600 spirits from around the world competed in a blind tasting where top spirits buyers from around NYC judged the spirits by their category and price.

We are also excited to announce that – based on feedback from the trade including producers and buyers – we are moving the NYISC to spring instead of fall. The 8th Annual New York International Spirits Competition will be held April 23rd, 2017!

*Please note that due to customs and other shipping delays, late spirits will be judged by a smaller panel. Please check the list below for the latest winners.
