The 2022 U. S. Open Whiskey & Spirits Championship is proud to announce the medal winners and Grand National Champions.

Judging in the U.S. Open Whiskey and Spirits Championships is blind; the judges know only the categories, but they do not know what they are tasting. Canadian entries were judged by distillers and instructors from Niagara College in Welland, Ontario. The American entries were judged by distillers and whiskey and spirits experts in Oxford, Ohio at the U.S. Open Event Center.
