Yes, we will also be sending the results to around 20000+ Sommeliers in and around France. We believe that the sommeliers are the real tastemakers and influencers when it comes to on-premise spirits trends. A sommelier’s suggestion is highly valued by the restaurant and other on-premise customers.
High profile buyers will take a look at your packaging too. The judging process consists of 3 phases:
Each spirits entry will be blind tasted to assess the spirits' quality. The quality score will be marked out of 50. It will be a weighted average of the judges scores on the basis of quality, typicity, and food parability.
The judges will give a value score out of 25 based on their assessment of how much the spirits should be priced as, when compared to the quality. It's not necessary for a spirits brand to be very cheap to recieve a good price score. This score basically judges how much value your spirits brand provides to the customers for the value charged.
The judges will see the packaging and give a score out of 25 based on how appealing it would be for the average spirits buyer based on their industry knowledge. The parameters they would be evaluating on would include factors like appeal, clarity, uniqueness, and so on.
Winners get year-round social media support along with the press support from the Paris Spirits Cup as well as our media partners BTN and BevRoute
