Running for 30 years, the Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky Awards recognise the best wine served on board the world’s airlines in first and business class.
Airlines can participate providing they served wine in business or first class on mid- or long-haul routes. Each can enter two reds, two whites, a sparkling and a fortified or dessert wine from both their business and first class cellars. They can compete in as many categories as they like, but to be eligible for the Best Cellar awards had to enter at least one red, white and sparkling wine.
Every bottle is blind-tasted by a panel of independent judges. Wines are scored out of 100, with award-winning ones rated between 93 and 97, and anything under 75 deemed undrinkable.
To calculate the Best First and Business Class Cellar awards, we take the average mark of an airline’s red, white and sparkling wines. For the Best Overall Cellar, we take all scores into account.
