Major Trophies

CHAMPION AUSTRALIAN DISTILLER

The Champion Australian Distiller Trophy acknowledges outstanding achievement in distilling excellence. The Trophy will be awarded to the distiller with the highest average score, calculated on the basis of the distiller’s top three (3) scoring Exhibits, at least one of which must be a Gold Medal winning Exhibit.

CHAMPION AUSTRALIAN SMALL BATCH SPIRIT (Eligible Classes: All)

The Champion Australian Small Batch Spirit Trophy acknowledges specialty small-scale production spirits and liqueurs that are made in limited quantities from a unique recipe that is distinct from a distiller’s standard range, and come from a single distillation, barrel or cask, the output or capacity of which is not greater than 250L (litres). Small Batch Spirits and Liqueurs will be judged in their own classes. The highest scoring Gold Medal winning Small Batch Spirits and Liqueurs from each Class will be reassessed using the Borda Count (i.e. consensus vote) method to determine the Trophy winner. See ‘Judging Process’ for more information.
