ALIA is voted by the industry, for the industry and after the first round of voting, which is open to the industry as a whole, we have the finalists in the off-premise categories. These finalists will now go to ALIA’s extensive panel of judges from all sectors of Australia’s liquor industry. Full details on the voting and judging process are available on the ALIA website.

The judges will now vote for the top three in each of the categories, to ascertain the ALIA winners. These votes will then be audited by PKF, with the winners revealed at this year’s awards, taking place at Randwick Racecourse on Wednesday, 31 October.

ALIA is the night of nights for Australia’s liquor industry, so make sure you are there and BOOK YOUR TICKET NOW.

Congratulations to all this year’s off-premise finalists, the on-premise finalists will be revealed later this week.
