2019 ABA Judges
We couldn’t accomplish anything without our talented pool of judges at the Alberta Beverage Awards.
It takes a special balance of experience, talent, and knowledge to accurately assess flight after flight of blind samples to find the purest expressions of grape, spirit, and grain but also spot faults, avoid palate fatigue, and still look for balance and flavour.
Our judges include some of the finest palates in the province – drawn from restaurants, retail operations, consultants and educators.
We’ve been told that people avoid having trade tastings the week of the competition since we have most of Alberta’s key beverage influencers on our judging panel!
