Almost all spirits competitions focus on super-premium to ultra-premium products, ignoring the premium, standard and well brands that account for a majority of your dollar profits. Our focus this year is to showcase the best tasting, value-related brands that make up such a large part of the spirits market. In the 11th annual BTI BEST BUY BAR competition, BTI will find the best values in all spirits categories, in three key price ranges. This provides a comparative tool for trade buyers making key decisions for their restaurant, bar, or retail outlet, and for consumers looking to stock up their home bar with sensibly priced, great tasting spirits.
Price categories are: $25 & under, $20 & under, $15 & under, and $10 & under. Entry deadline is July 1st.
Entry Deadline is July 1st
Every month we feature a campaign to showcase spirit categories. See our calendar for your category deadline. You can enter ANY spirit at ANYTIME outside of this schedule to receive your review in 60 days using our private consulting services.
