About the competitions
Winning an award at the London Spirits Competition is widely regarded as a mark of distinction by anyone in the trade. The judges are made up of some of the world’s most esteemed hospitality professionals, including highly respected mixologists and bar owners. This judging body prides itself on holding a deep understanding of quality, taste, value and packaging. A brand winning Gold is proof that they have been singled out to have a clear market value for trade buyers.
The European Spirits Challenge has been upheld by a 16 year organisation and was named by CNN “The most influential beverage competition in the world”. This competition is based purely on taste, as judges are not allowed to know any information about the spirit including the brand, bottle, or country of origin.
The judges are some of the most powerful spirits buyers in the world, and are not allowed to discuss their opinions amongst each other when tasting the liquid, giving a completely unbiased result. Lanique was judged amongst many other renowned brands.
The World Liqueur Competition is a publication documenting the best drinks and brands around the world. Competitions are held each year based primarily on taste. Again, Lanique secured the top-tier award; World’s Best Floral.
