Annual USA Spirit Ratings

by Michael Kotendzhi | Food & Drink

Each year, breweries and distilleries are gathering to announce their proudest creation. Over forty-five countries compete in the fiercest competition in USA spirits and with no surprise, the USA, Mexico, and the UK are the top countries, along with Whiskey, Gin, and Vodka being the top categories.

Above all, The Gin Black Pig Costa Alentejana is awarded ninety-nine points with the best spirit by value and package together, becoming the star at 2020 award. Competition is judged by three major components: quality, value, and packaging.

The USA Spirits Ratings is a marketing system to create a communication bridge between the brands and the tasters. With the three components in evaluation, consumers can identify the desirable products with distinct flavours and eye-catching packaging.

The competition concludes with 201 gold medals, 305 silver, and 80 bronze.

The breweries and distilleries around the world dedicate their team effort to create the most favorable spirits for the global consumers. 18 Wheels Logistics is pleased to be partnering copacking and labeling with our alcohol beverage customers and provide warehousing and trucking
