Why Submit To NYISC?

Why Submit To The 7th Annual New York International Spirits Competition

The Top 10 Reasons You Should Participate in NYISC:

1. We are the only International Spirits Competition where all the judges are real trade buyers judging the product by its category and actual price. These judges are buyers from the top liquor stores, restaurants, hotels and more in the New York Metropolitan area.

2. This is an opportunity for you to place your spirit in front of multiple high-powered buyers in one of the biggest beverage markets in the world. All of these judges buy spirits for a living.

3. This is a wonderful opportunity for an established spirit to reconnect and/or be rediscovered by the buying community in a true blind tasting.

4. Products new to the New York Market and looking to enter the United States will be tasted by multiple real trade buyers who currently work in NYC.

5. We are holding it in the Media Capital of the World…New York. The media will be invited to report on the competition and attend the Press/Trade Event showcasing the winners. Winning distilleries are invited to attend and showcase their winning products to the press at no additional charge.
