The response to our award from gin drinkers in Finland and further beyond was fantastic, and our sales over the years have grown over five-fold.
Miika Lipiäinen / Kyrö Distillery, Finland / Gold and silver medals 2019
IWSC is the pinnacle. We work hard to encourage brands to join our portfolio, so for them to see that we’ve won this award is very helpful.
David Hood / Spirit Cartel, UK / Spirits Distributor 2019
IWSC helped us to realise that we were on the right track at such an early and influential time in our growth as a craft spirits producer.
Michael Harris / Mountain Distilling Company, Australia / Gold 2019
When we’re talking to new partners, having this award to say that our spirits are great quality makes a difference when at the negotiation table.
Nick Ravenhall / ATOM Brands, UK / UK Gin Producer 2019
There are a lot of spirits competitions out there these days. Pretty soon we might even need a competition for the best competitions! If ever such a day arrived, it’s a safe bet that the IWSC would take home a 'double gold'.
