Each spirit is blind tasted and rated by category. The Top 3 spirits in each category will then be featured in the annual January/February “Best Of” issue of Cigar & Spirits Magazine, which is world renowned and distributed both nationally and internationally. All qualifying ratings and results will be featured on cigarandspirits.com which offers over 100,000 unique visitors a month. Each “Top 3 Winner” will receive the prestigious Cigar & Spirits accolade to be placed on your bottles, POP, promotions, ads and marketing pieces with your rating, along with the recognition in Cigar & Spirits Magazine.
Brands like Ketel One Vodka, Zacapa Rum, Stolichnaya Elit Vodka, Coppola, NOLET’s Silver Gin and many more have used the Cigar & Spirits Magazine official accolade on their bottles, packaging and marketing in order to show validity of their product to consumers.
Unlike ratings you receive from other competitions which are only seen by you and the competition host, your ratings are actually published for the world to see! Cigar & Spirits Magazine allows consumers to directly experience the results of this competition throughout the world.
