GERMAN RUM AWARDS 2017
Esteemed rum community,
The 7th GERMAN RUM FESTIVAL will once again include the GERMAN RUM AWARDS. We would like to cordially invite you to submit your products for a chance to win one of the coveted gold, silver or bronze medals. All participating rums will receive special attention during the festival.
An international jury will taste all submitted rums in a two-day evaluation process. The flights are divided into categories, e.g. white rum, Solera rum, Cachaça, etc. The jury’s conducts the tasting blind at a quiet location and rates the rums according to a point system.
The highly sophisticated criteria are as follows:
- Appearance (Clarity/ Color)
- Aroma/ Olfactics
- Balance of Olfactics – taste
- Balance of Taste – Aroma
- Finish/ Aftertaste
- Overall Impression/ Ensemble
At the festival, all submitted bottles will be presented in the Hall of Fame to give visitors an overview. Of course, all winners will be mentioned in the media and will receive a master that can be used for labels or online presentations, etc.
Experience has shown that consumers prefer to buy products that have received an award – medalist is a search criterion!
We charge a submission fee of 75.- € each per product for exhibitors and 150.- € for non-exhibitors. This fee contributes to the hotel and lodging for the jurors, renting the location, artwork expenses, etc. – we’re not spending it for fun!
