Our Concept

An awards competition years in the making and long overdue – it has been our experience across the country and around the world over the past 17+ years that all consumers want to know the preference of their peers. Founders David Sweet and Mario Campa have more than 35 years of combined international spirits experience, hosting and consulting in tasting events across North America, Europe and Australia – providing them massive consumer insights and experiences. Always delivering “what the consumers want’.
