We run a tightly structured, rigorous tasting process. We use the ‘double-blind’ method, which means samples are tasted in pre-poured numbered glasses to ensure our experts never see a bottle. Each spirit is judged by a whole panel in sync, allowing for group discussions.
We want to ensure that if a spirit is faulty or damaged we can serve a fresh sample to avoid any of your spirits getting an unfair score.
In addition, if your spirit is put forward for a trophy, we will use one of the extra bottles in these judging sessions. We also often promote top-rated spirits at trade and consumer events throughout the year.
