International Spirits Challenge 2020 News
Any surplus stock left over from the International Spirits Challenge 2020 will be raffled to raise funds for The Drinks Trust’s Covid-19 Emergency Fund.
All proceeds will go towards supporting UK drinks and hospitality industry workers that have been left in financial peril as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
The Drinks Trust is a registered charity that has supported the drinks industry since 1886. It is dedicated to providing social care and financial assistance to industry insiders that need support.
The Covid-19 Emergency Fund provides grants and assistance to drinks industry professionals that have lost their source of income due to the pandemic.

In response to the global COVID–19 outbreak, the International Spirits Challenge team has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that we successfully deliver the competition in the best way possible for our entrants this year.
As ever, we will strive to offer you the best service and helpful support during this challenging period, and we will endeavour to implement the following measures going forward.
• Our category entry deadlines have been updated on the website to provide as much time as possible for entries to be made. However, please note these deadlines will be final.
• The shipping deadline dates for each spirits category have be extended to allow entrants to ship their products.
• We will work with entrants with regards to sending their sample shipments to meet our delivery deadlines and ask entrants to keep us updated with delivery information via email@example.com
We are currently developing an adjusted schedule for the blind tasting assessment days and are working with our esteemed judges to ensure the highest possible standards and health and safety procedures.
Historically, our tastings have always run as relatively small-scale panels, with specific experts brought in for each spirits category.
Finally, … we will continue to provide regular updates throughout the forthcoming weeks.We would like to wish all our entrants all the very best during this difficult time. If you have any questions, please to do not hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Best wishes, The ISC team
