Whisky highball awards

We're looking for the world's best whisky highball...

As consumers' appetite for longer drinks with lower ABVs continues to grow, so does the rise in popularity of whisky highballs. No longer a drink only meant to be enjoyed neat, whisky has evolved into a bartender's dream, with the whisky highball still able to perfectly showcase the quality of a whisky, but as a drink to be savoured for longer.

The IWSC has introduced the new mixer category, whisky highball, for our 2022 competition.

A specialist judging panel will assess how well each whisky pairs with Double Dutch Soda Water.

The whisky highball will comprise one part whisky to three parts soda water; no ice or garnish is used, and the drink will be tasted blind in a Riedel glass.
