Why Are Spirits Awards So Important In 2020 And How Do They Encourage Consumers To Buy Alcohol Online?

With consumers buying more alcohol online than ever before, we explore why spirits awards are so important for distillers and brand owners in 2020...

1. Consumer and Trade Awareness

There are endless options when buying great spirits online these days. This also means that consumers don’t always know about some of the best small-batch spirits out there. Spirits awards build consumer and trade awareness online, encouraging consumers to shop brands they may not have heard about otherwise.

2. Quality Confirmed by Expert Judges

Today’s consumers are more interested and educated in spirits than ever before. Having quality confirmed by expert judges helps to align brands with a level of quality that consumers can expect and depend on. 

3. Consumer Trust

Finally, spirits awards increase consumer trust in the purchase of a new item - premium spirits are not always a small spend so to buy without tasting can be a big decision. By having awards, and building your reputation, a customer is more likely to take a chance on your brand.
