Judges

alt_text

Judging at Drink Easy is more egalitarian and more collective in decision than a conventional drinks award. We feature a diverse and relevant group of judges that represent not only expertise, but a broad and inclusive spectrum of people. There is a particular focus on ‘in-market gatekeepers’, those who use the products they are judging, and judges that have a great depth and understanding of consumer consumption, rather than punitively assessing products. These are experts by virtue of vocational experience, and though may be adept as technical judges, have a broader scope of reference.
