Said Pacult of UBC’s immediate success, “The clear success of our first three Challenges reflects the UBC credo of Integrity-Method-Credibility. UBC’s groundbreaking methodology assures the precise and careful evaluation of every product entered. Our Ultimate Challenges are completely unbiased and fair plus we have the finest judging panels in the world.
And now for 2011, we are psyched to announce an exciting added component to Ultimate Cocktail Challenge: the UCC Signature Cocktail Challenge category, where suppliers can enter their brand’s signature cocktail recipe for evaluation by our experts. Now, that will be an eye-opening experience for the panels of judges.” Product submission fees are as follows:
*Ultimate SPIRITS Challenge: $395 per spirit submission
