Royal Australian Spirit Awards

We are busy planning for the 2023 Royal Adelaide Show & entries will be open soon.

Check back here for details.


The Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of South Australia (RA&HS) has launched the Royal Australian Spirit Awards (RASA). Recognising the success of Australia’s ever-growing craft spirits industry, the Royal Australian Spirit Awards are open to distillers from across Australia and New Zealand, and will feature classes for brandy, gin, rum, vodka, whisky and other spirits. This is the second time in the RA&HS’s 180-year history that spirits have been included in Royal Adelaide Show competitions.

Medals will be up for grabs in approximately 20 individual classes, and trophies will be presented for Champion Whisky, Vodka, Rum, Gin, Brandy and Other Spirits. Major awards will be presented for Champion Spirit of Show and Champion Small Batch. All entrants in the spirit competitions receive personalised feedback from nationally-recognised judges.

Please ensure that you have read the Royal Australian Spirit Awards Competition Schedule before you submit your entries. To complete your application online, you must supply your credit card details. MasterCard or Visa. Unfortunately we do not accept American Express and Diners Cards.
