The Spirits Masters is a series of blind tasting competitions, drawing in entries from across the world. One of the key elements to its success is the quality and the dedication of the judges involved. All judges are completely independent.

 

Each spirit is judged on its own merit according to the category into which it is entered, and then awarded a Silver, Gold or Master medal.

 

There is no limit to the number of medals that can be awarded, ensuring that each spirit is judged independently, and not in direct competition with any other spirit.
