Introducing The TIPXY Awards

Introducing The TIPXY Awards

Drum roll please….

TIPXY has launched their very first annual TIPXY Awards, a competition for the small batch & craft spirits industry. Each product was judged for excellence in their liquor category by a panel of skilled craft spirit experts.

The TIPXY Awards Competition is in line with TIPXY's overall philosophies of adventure, uniquenessness, and the importance of small craft businesses in a highly commercialized industry. The TIPXY Awards focuses on craft spirits, allowing for smaller brands to gain exposure and be rated, and at the same time introduced to consumers who likely won’t find these high quality bottles of craft and small batch spirits in their local liquor stores. 

The carefully selected award winning bottles of the TIPXY Awards Competition don't only receive a neck hanging award on the bottle, but are also awarded with guaranteed placement on TIPXY’S platform. This placement includes email marketing, social media coverage, and digital award medals to be used on their product images and any other promotional materials, helping further the TIPXY ideology of getting craft spirits out there so that everyone can sip something new.

Excited about the launch of this competition, Founder & CEO, Mayer Koenig, states, “TIPXY Awards finally allows the smaller craft distilleries and brands to stand toe-to-toe with the conglomerates and get their products ranked, rated and gain additional exposure. It was important for us to create a competition to focus and award smaller distillers and brands because there hasn’t been enough in the past."
