THE NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL SPIRITS COMPETITION ANNOUCES 2013 WINNERS
New York, NY (Nov 11, 2013) – In its 4th year, the New York International Spirits Competition (“NYISC”) was held at 3 West Club on October 21th to taste, evaluate and judge over 400 of the world’s best–distilled spirits – a 23% increase from last years submissions. Over 37 countries submitted their brands to be critiqued by a hand-selected panel of A-List and key TRADE ONLY judges – buyers, retail storeowners, restaurant/bar proprietors, distributors and importers – those that have the unique ability to make a direct impact on sales.
The NYISC is truly an international spirits competition and created new categories as the spirits world continues to evolve. This year the NYISC created a new category for the growing Chinese Market and for the first time had Baiju in its competition. The number of international whiskey producers continues to grow and the NYISC created with advise of the trade buyers judges “American Single Malt” and “International Single Malt” categories.
“This year’s significant increase in submissions is a clear sign that the industry truly recognizes and appreciates NYISC’s overall philosophy of judging for real sales impact,” says Adam Levy, Founder of the NYISC. ”While other renowned competitions prize up to 85% of entrants with awards, the discerning panel and ethos of the NYISC is to honor the brands that are most deserving among their peers. This year, NYISC prized only 48% of its entrants..
