London Competitions

Awarding Wines, Beer and Spirits By Quality, Value and Packaging.

These competitions look to recognise, reward and help promote wine, beer, and spirits brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific drinker. For any brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s wine, beer, and spirits list -  and then vitally stay there - they need to be marketable and consumer-driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it.

That is why the London Competitions are different. They will single out and shine the spotlight on those brands that consumers really want to buy and have a clear market value for trade buyers.

USA Ratings

Competitions That Rate By Quality, Value and Packaging.

Crucially all the winners in the USA Ratings will give future trade buyers, be they for a supermarket, specialist retailer, casual dining or upmarket restaurant, the re-assurance that these are wines, beer, and spirits that their customers want to buy.

The USA Ratings also recognizes the huge talent and skills that now exist right through the supply chain. From the winemakers, brewers, distillers, grape-growers, and producers; through to the specialist importers and wholesalers that help bring them to market; along with the designers, packaging experts and brand development teams that ensure there are a market and customer base to sell to.
