About the Brands of Promise Awards

The Tequila Aficionado Brands of Promise Awards began in 2013 as our response to a secondary industry that has sprouted up around awards programs in the spirits industry. In a very much pay-to-play world where large sums of money are involved in entering today’s contests and even more is required of winners in licensing fees to use the award logos on marketing, online and point of sale materials, we felt it was time that something change.

What Makes The Brands of Promise Different

We do not charge an entry fee to be considered for these awards, nor do we charge licensing fees for the winners to use the awards seal. You take your award with you as soon as you’ve won it. Winners simply download the high resolution images for their awards by clicking on the thumbnails here at

We encourage winners to use them on their websites, brochures, social media, shelf talkers, and point of sale materials. We even provide a high resolution QR Code with the award seal on it that links directly to the award presentation. (In case you haven’t noticed, each of our Sipping Off The Cuff reviews receives a QR code that brands are always welcome to use online and in their marketing and packaging materials which links directly to their Sipping Off The Cuff review.)
