New group of Grand Spirits Masters named

After 12 months of rigorously judged competition during the Global Spirits Masters 2015, a new group of Grand Spirits Masters has been named.

The Spirits Masters Awards Lunch was held at The Roof Gardens yesterday (4 December)

Named during The Spirits Business’s annual Spirits Masters Awards lunch at The Roof Gardens in Kensington, London, yesterday, Grand Spirits Masters are brands or companies that have accumulated the most points throughout each individual Spirits Masters competition.

The Spirits Masters 2015 – a blind tasting competition judged by an independent panel of expert judges throughout the year – saw an outstanding array of medalists recognised across the entire sector.

“We had hundreds of entries across the Global Spirits Masters series this year, and it’s fantastic to be able to celebrate the success of the international spirits industry through these awards,” said Kristiane Sherry, editor, The Spirits Business.

“The Grand Master recipients are truly leading their categories in terms of excellence and innovation, and I congratulate them all on such a successful year.”
