A Celebration of Grain-To-Glass Cocktails & Farm-To-Table Food

The Competition


Today’s craft distillers are producing a whole new type of beverage - the type that traditional spirits competitions don’t always have the palate for. As a result, craft producers tend to get left out. That’s the whole idea behind the Heartland Spirits Fest Competition - to recognize the new breed of craft distillers. We’re sanctioned by the American Craft Spirits Association and our judging panel is one that gets the style, heart and direction of craft producers.
