The results of the 2022 London Spirits Competition are out. This is a competition where spirits were judged for end-user consumers.
Spirits were rated with three main criteria in mind: quality, value and packaging. To be a medal winner, Spirits must show a rating in all the three factors with most of the weighting on quality.
A record number of entrants were vying for the highly-coveted bronze, silver, and gold medals, with around 2,500 spirits brands from more than 80 countries (50% more entrants than last year), were assessed by the top panel of judges – some of the world’s leading figures from the hospitality sector.
Some of the country’s top bartenders and spirits buyers gathered on March 23-25 at St Mary’s Church in Marylebone, London, sniffing, swirling and spitting their way through a vast array of gins, vodkas, and whiskies as well as a range of more obscure spirits.
The bartenders were from some of the country’s most prestigious restaurants, bars and hotels, including The Ritz, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Gleneagles, The Goring, The Connaught and Claridge’s.
