Best Cocktail and Spirits Writer
Great journalism is one of the best ways to communicate to the general public the value and significance of great bars, bartenders, cocktails and related products. This award recognizes an outstanding author (magazine, newspaper, online media) who highlights bars, bartenders, cocktails, spirit reviews and drink trends in the industry.
