About the USA Spirits Ratings Competition

USA Spirits Ratings Logo

The USA Spirits Ratings competition was introduced by Beverage Trade Network which organizes Spirits events worldwide. The competition aims to recognize, reward and promote spirits brands that are created to identify with and target a specific spirit drinker. The competition works on three major criteria; quality, packaging and value for money. For any brand to earn its space on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s spirits list, they must be marketable and consumer driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it. This approach of USA Spirits Ratings makes the competition different from other beer competitions.
