Judging of Craft Spirits
Registration is Open
Now the oldest and the largest competition dedicated to craft spirits, the ADI Judging accepts US and International entries in all classes and categories of distilled spirits, RTDs, cocktail bitters, aperitif & fortified wines from its members and non-member small/medium size producers.
However, our mission remains the same: ADI recognizes excellence in the glass; promotes distillers and blenders that are producing the world’s finest quality artisan spirits; and gives participating producers valuable, unbiased, third-party feedback on the quality and process of their spirits. In addition, ADI considers all spirits for our packaging awards, and evaluates them to see if they meet the standards for our Certification of Craft Spirits. All at no additional cost or paperwork.
Deadline to apply for COLA Waiver for International Spirits: December 22, 2019
Deadline for Spirits Registration: January 10, 2020
Deadline for Receiving Entries: January 16, 2020
