WSA Spirits-Finder Apps made in the Carinthian "Nock-Land"
The "World Spirits Award" is known among connoisseurs as the highest quality spirits award in the world. The contents and topics are presented on the website www.world-spirits.com. You can find results of the competitions from the past 10 years by utilizing the special tools WSA Spirits-Finder and the WSA Spirits-Calculator. These features are - like many other interesting channels - accessible via registration on our official website.
Two years ago we commissioned Wolfgang Egarter from IT-Solutions to program these tools as an app for IOS devices. The result is impressive and can be downloaded for free via the App Store.
Following in the footsteps of this concept, Florian Hölbling and Mario Vukman have now programmed the WSA Spirits Finder and WSA Spirits Calculator for Android devices (available for download in Google Play Store). For both of them, the writing of WSA Spirits-Finder app was essentially their diploma thesis at HTL Villach. In passing: The headquarters of World-Spirits is in Carinthia's Nock-Land and the three programmers are also natives from this marvelous region.
From now on you have the opportunity to directly access the results with IOS and Android smartphones on the WSA Spirits Finder, dating back to the year 2008. The WSA App (in German and English) includes the following functions, which are provided free of charge:
- WSA Spirits Finder
- WSA Spirits Calculator
- WSA Website
Detailed information on the approx. 3,500 spirits - from A for Asbach Uralt to Z for Zwack Unicum: producers around the globe, from manufacture to industry (with direct links to the websites), products ranging from absinthe, Armagnac and Moutai to tequila and plum distillates (some with photos). You can select distilleries, restrict your search to medals or WSA years, choose a special brand or a special product, and much more. The basis for this high quality data pool are the results of the professional jury at the annual World Spirits Award. The app also includes verbal descriptions of brand-name products and the exact number of points they received (maximum 100 WOB points), and thus offers profound information on the price/performance ratio.
The Spirits Calculator is primarily designed for the catering and hotel sector, but can also be used by private individuals and professionals to calculate prices. It is basically a pocket calculator with modern technology and functions, which, in just a few steps, enables the calculation of spirits per portion - at the bar, in the restaurant, in the café or wherever else you might be. It doesn't matter in which country you want to calculate your spirits - this service tool includes all the important parameters. The core function is the absolute calculation and not the percentage calculation of spirits. You can also enter the net income per portion and in doing so, as well as the costs such as service charges and VAT, you can also receive a customer-friendly price, which you can also print.
In addition, as a registered user you will also have access to the protected area on the World Spirits website, where you can find information from the spirits world which is hidden from non-users.
The WSA motto is "Simply the Best in Spirits"! And, with the new WSA app, you will become part of the community, who are sure to benefit from our life's work in "spirits" and be a "spiritual" step ahead.
Have fun on your journey through the world of spirits!
