Old Mutual Trophy Spirits Show 2020
Enter by Friday 29 May
We are pleased to announce that – despite the very challenging environment in which we all now find ourselves – Old Mutual has confirmed its continued sponsorship of the Old Mutual Trophy Spirits Show.
Judging is scheduled to take place in Cape Town on 23 to 25 June, subject to the lockdown and travel restrictions being lifted by then. (In the event of further restrictive regulations being imposed, later dates have been secured with the judging venue. Two of the international judges have indicated that their timetables are flexible. The third judge will confirm once we know that international travel will be resumed).
The inaugural show, which received 210 entries and was judged in June 2019, set an inspiring standard and was warmly welcomed by producers and importers. The awards function, hosted in the heart of Sandton, brought together gold medal and trophy winners, media, trade personalities and influential consumers. Their response left no doubt of the importance of the competition and its value to the industry.
In the turmoil following the COVID-19 lockdown and the uncertainties afflicting the liquor industry, the Old Mutual Trophy Spirits Show offers the perfect way for producers to engage with the market. Credible awards – the result of specialist panels with international experience judging spirits, liqueurs, bitters and digestives – will help consumers seeking to optimise their purchasing power to make the right shopping decision.
Above, please find the entry form and entry kit detailing the salient dates, regulations and classes of entry.
Conscious of the need to make the competition accessible to the entire industry, and to provide for the impact of COVID-19 on everyone’s budgets, an additional amount has been set aside from the 2020 Old Mutual sponsorship to assist. The applicable discounts on the entry fee (R1 675-00 incl. VAT per product entry) are as follows:
- 3 entries per category (e.g. Gin) less 15%
- 5 entries per category less 25%

- 15 entries per category less 45%
