Each competition category will be judged by one of five demographic groups, each with slightly different preferences. Thanks to this you get real feedback directly from your customers. Our judges are end consumers who don't suffer from the professional distortions of professional judges of spirits competitions. Each of our demographic groups will judge your product once every 24 months, therefore this unique concept of ours guarantees you true independence and adds more value to this award. This makes each specific award much more exclusive.
Consumers who taste your products will evaluate them on the basis of real criteria that they use to make decisions in their everyday shopping. The competition consists of two phases. First, there will be a blind tasting where points will be awarded for taste and aroma. The jury will then be presented with the product and its retail price.

Gentlemen under 35 often go out to socialise and follow all the trends of bar culture. They often seek attention and are not afraid to spend money to catch the spotlight.
Gentlemen over the age of 35 usually spend the most money annually on premium quality drinks, so they are interested in what they are buying. They buy not only for themselves and their contacts, but also for their dear ones.
