The Australian Liquor Industry Awards (ALIA) are back in 2022 and voting is now open for you to pick your favourite brands, stores, venues and people.
This year ALIA boasts six new categories for the country’s bar and spirits scene with Brand Ambassador of the Year, Gin Bar, Rum Bar, Tequila Bar and Whisky Bar of the Year all added to the categories. We have also added Best No-Low Alcohol Product to recognise this growing area.
The process of becoming and ALIA finalist and winner is two-fold. We have this initial voting phase, which is open nominations right now. So this is your opportunity to get your favourite bars, bartenders, bar teams, brand ambassadors and products recognised. We then collate your votes and compile the top 10 nominations in each category, these are our finalists. These finalists are then sent to our panel of judges, a wide selection of industry experts from all over Australia, who will vote for their favourite one, two and three in each category.
Those results are then compiled, independently audited to give us our winners, who will be announced at the incredible ALIA night, this year taking place on Wednesday, 19 October at Sydney Town Hall.
It’s an open and honest voting process, which is independently audited to ensure the right people are recognised and win.
This is the important part – if you want your favourite venues, people and products to be recognised then you need to vote now.
