The Quality Drink Awards comprise of categories for wine, beer, cider and spirits. Our judges are Masters of Wine, Cicerones, distillers, brewers, wine-makers, sommeliers and world class bartenders. Each judge brings his or her expertise to bear on the drinks submitted and rewards according to industry standard marks of excellence and quality.
This year wines can be submitted by grape variety, regionality or typicity and we have extended the sparkling and rosé wine categories to reflect market growth and change in this area. Our spirits categories now include dark and clear spirits to capture the vibrancy of the market where more unusual spirits are now being launched.
