The largest and most-respected judging devoted to craft spirits

ADI accepts entries in all classes and categories of craft spirits from small, independently owned distillers, blenders, bitters makers, and producers of aperitif & fortified wines. Each year, both US and international entries are tasted blind and evaluated by or expert panels of judges made up of distillers, journalists, bar owners, bartenders, retailer, wholesalers, distributors and importers. All spirits entered will receive written tasting notes and be considered for awards both for the spirit and the packaging.

New for 2017: Entrants can choose to submit one or more spirits for testing and receive a certificate of chemical analysis which is valid for all major retailers, most countries import/export and tender purposes. A $700 value offered to judging entrants for $150 per spirit. For more details check out our submission guidelines.
