This Year’s Spirits Competition Once Again Sets Exceptional Standards and Discovers the Best-Distilled Spirits from Across the Globe
New York, NY (Nov 14, 2012) – In its 3rd year, the New York International Spirits Competition (“NYISC”) was held at 3 West Club on October 21th to judge the world’s best–distilled spirits. Nearly 400 spirits were tasted – a 25% increase from last years submissions. Over 34 countries submitted their brands to be critiqued by an unparalled 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 3 Double Gold Medal, 9 Gold Medals, 66 Silver Medals and 67 Bronze Medals.
