About The Competition
The Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition is a unique event and the first of its kind. Run in partnership with the London-based International Wine & Spirit Competition, which has been running for 47 years and is the world’s premier platform for recognising quality in the industry, the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition is created specifically for the Asian market by those who know and are intimately involved in the region.
It is the first truly Asian wine and spirit competition in the world, supported by key factors such as: Asian food and wine pairing awards; an award for Best Wine produced in China; and judging conducted by Asia’s most esteemed wine and spirit judges from China, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and India – including the competition’s Director and Master of Wine, Hong Kong-based Debra Meiburg MW and Chinese food and wine expert Simon Tam.
The competition results will offer the Asian consumer the ultimate guide to purchasing wine and spirits that are sensitive to the Asian palate and cultural consumption patterns.
Being recognised by the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition provides producers with instant prestige in the market. With the competition being the first truly Asian wine and spirit competition, the vast population of wine and spirit consumers in Asia, will be eagerly anticipating the results.
