Design awards


On today’s crowded shelves – and social media channels – the way a drink looks is just as important as how it tastes.

During our tasting, our judges never see the bottle/can they’re scoring, so instead, packaging takes centre stage in our Design Awards, which reward innovation, creativity and brand personality in bottle artwork, design and packaging.

If you’ve entered your wines, spirits or alternative drinks into our main awards, you can also enter the Design Awards for an extra £95 per entry – just check the final page of your entry form. You can also enter just the Design Awards, and don't need to partake in our tasting awards, for £199 per entry. We require one unit per entry to be sent to our warehouse in the UK for our experts to judge.

The closing date for entry is 4 August, samples need to be delivered by 11 August, the judging will take place on 22 August 2023.
