2017 Michelangelo spirit Award Entry Forms
Published on 05-06-2017
Entries have opened for the 2017 Michelangelo International Wine and Spirit Awards, and our eyes are firmly fixed on the brand new Class 50, South Africa's first ever Craft Spirit Awards, proudly sponsored by Distillique and SACDI (the Southern African Craft Distillers Institute).
Class 50 will have 4 trophy's available -
All entrants in these classes will still be eligible for Michelangelo Silver, Gold and Double Gold and Platinum Medals, but only the winner in each section will walk away with this coveted trophy.
Entries are open as of 1 June, and samples should be submitted between 1 & 31 July. Entry fee is R970 per product.
An interesting but little known fact - non-commercial products (i.e. during product development) may also be entered, as long as you have a lab analysis certificate to accompany your entry. This provides a unique opportunity for future Craft Distillers – especially those that need to find outside investors.
Lab analysis can be obtained through Integral Labs:

1 Bottle needs to be submitted to Integral Labs and 2 Bottles for judging – so if you have 3 bottles of product ready, you can enter !!!
NOTE: Product development entries do not need a final label or bottle - a sticker stating the manufacturers' name, product name, %ABV and key ingredients used will be sufficient.
Entry forms are available on the Michelangelo Awards website, as well as on the bottom of this page.
