Melbourne International Spirits Competition has announced its 2021 winners, with more than 200 submissions from around the world being assessed by judges remotely this year.
What sets the Melbourne International Spirits Competition apart from other international beverage competitions is their “trade only” blind judging panel. The judges are retail store buyers, sommeliers, restaurant beverage directors, hoteliers, distributors, mixologists and importers from around Australia.
“We feel that these judges, whose livelihood rely upon their skill set, truly know what the consumer wants, as they receive on a daily basis the feedback from the consumer of what is good and what will sell,” the organisers explained.
