Spirited Awards names 2020 regional nominees

Tales of the Cocktail (TOTC) has revealed the top 10 regional finalists for each category in its Spirited Awards 2020 following a record number of submissions.

This year marks the 14th annual Spirited Awards, which celebrates the best of the on-trade industry.

With the majority of events and trade shows across the drinks industry currently being cancelled or postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Tales of the Cocktail Foundation felt it was “more important now than ever to continue to honour the professionals, organisations and establishments that have enhanced the industry”.

Established in 2007, the 2020 Spirited Awards received the highest number of submissions across all categories.

“In unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever to stay connected to and celebrate our phenomenal community,” said Caroline Rosen, president of Tales of the Cocktail Foundation.

“These professionals have worked tirelessly for years, honing their craft and, really, taking care of others. We are honoured to take this opportunity to thank them for their contributions. Congratulations to all of this year’s regional honourees.”
