On May 15, 2022, a judging panel including top bartenders, bar managers, and buyers blindtasted, swirled, sipped, and judged spirits from across the world. This is where the winners of the fourth edition of the 2022 Bartender Spirits Awards were decided. 

Out of the many, many entries that the competition always receives, winners are decided on the basis of a simple formula:

M (Mixability Score) + B (Balance and Versatility) + T ((Taste, Mouthfeel and Finish) Score) + Package Score (P) + Value Score (V) = Bartenders Spirits Awards Final Score.

Each category is given a score out of 100 first and then a separate weighted score will be given for each of the parts of the judging process. Judging happens in three stages: Blind Tasting, Price Score Evaluation, and Packaging Evaluation. It is then that some spirits emerge victorious, ready to make ripples worldwide.

Here are the award-winning spirits at the 2022 Bartender Spirits Awards:
