Welcome to The Global Spirits Masters
The Global Spirits Masters is one of the most renowned blind tasting competitions in the world, and with a commitment to using only independent judges, is also one of the most impartial.
Distillers and bottlers from across the globe enter all manner of spirits from Scotch and Cognac to gin and vodka, to be assessed on aroma, flavour and balance in an effort to win a coveted Silver, Gold or Master medal.
Each entry is judged on its own merits by specialist judges and according to its category, ensuring the liquid is assessed as fairly as possible.
The results from each competition are printed in The Spirits Business magazine and also published online, while at the end of the year the most impressive expressions are named best in class at a glittering awards ceremony held in London.
Please ensure your entry form, payment and samples reach us before the following deadlines. Late entries may not be judged but you will still be charged.
