About Bartenders' Choice Awards
Bartenders’ Choice Awards is an annual award that acknowledges excellence within the Nordic drinks industry. It was founded in 2010 and is recognized as the most prestigious awards for the Nordic bar scene. The Bartenders’ Choice Awards has been active in Sweden since 2010 and since 2017 it is also established in Norway, Finland and Denmark. The deciding jury is based on more than two hundred industry professionals and cocktail enthusiasts making the jury the most knowledgeable of its kind.
Each year the jury members nominate and vote for their favorites within ten categories before announcing the winners in grand fashion during the prestigious gala in Stockholm, Sweden on December 16th 2018.
“There are so many amazing bartenders and bars in the Nordic countries and they all deserve attention and praise. When we as active bartenders created Bartenders’ Choice Awards in 2010 we wanted to create the most prestigious price for bars to strive for. Not a competition where one specific drink decides a winner but a price that celebrates the day to day grind and the importance of consistency that goes into running a great and successful bar.”
