From experience gained over years of spirits competition management, we’ve come to know which procedures work, which ones don’t, and what adjustments turn good practices into best practices.
L.A. Spirits Awards provides a truly level playing field for all entries to protect against bias during all phases of the competition. Employing a blind tasting system ensures that judges focus on the quality of each entry, uninfluenced by information that might invoke favoritism or prejudices.
Judges are permitted the time they need to assess their assigned entries with care, and they are limited in their tasting quotas to guard against palate fatigue.
