Vancouver International Spirits Competition 2016

The first annual International Spirits Competition to hit Vancouver! Vancouver International Spirits Competition is the only professional judging of international and domestic spirits of this magnitude in British Columbia. Judged by Vancouver’s top industry professionals, the inaugural competition provides the opportunity to promote spirits to consumers, top industry experts, trade and media who influence trends and buying decisions within British Columbia.

Results of the competition will be unveiled at an awards ceremony, in the Grand Tasting Pavilion during Elixir Spirits Festival. The following week, winners will be published in the Vancouver Sun.  Additionally, a banner will be placed on the Vancouver Sun mobile site, driving readers to the results on the Elixir Spirits Festival website, providing an extensive reach to British Columbia consumers. Such publication will be of high interest to consumers as no such reference guide is currently available. This will be further supplemented by featuring Top 100 spirits weekly on the Elixir Spirits Festival website with great recipes, created by the Competition’s esteemed judges,  making it easy for consumers to enjoy these spirits at home.
