" Wine awards are super important. You’re judged at a similar level to other wines and to come out on top means that people trust what you’re doing. "

Tamara Roberts  /  Ridgeview Wine Estate, UK  /  IWSC President 2020

"

An IWSC accolade is one of the key pieces of getting your name out there, to actually tell people not only that you exist but also that you have quality, that you are a great product.

"

Billy Abbott  /  The Whisky Exchange  /  2022 Spirits Communicator of the Year, shortlist

"

Some of the most discerning and demanding palates in the spirits industry can be found at the IWSC’s judging sessions, so achieving any kind of medal is no mean feat!

"

Guy Hodcroft  /  Bordeaux Index  /  Judge

" One of the biggest successes we can point to off the back of our IWSC awards, are the largescale customers we have won as a direct result of the award. "

John Hall  /  Trevethan Distillery  /  2021 UK Gin Producer Trophy

"In a competition where the bar is high – the IWSC wine judging process is fair but demanding so achieving a medal is meaningful."

Rebecca Palmer  /  Corney & Barrow  /  Judge
