We didn’t get into this business to win awards but that doesn’t mean it’s not gratifying to be recognised for the work we do. In fact, receiving awards for doing something we love makes it even more rad. Last Wednesday, Maverick Drinks won IWSC Spirits Distributor of the Year for the third year in a row (and fourth time in five years)! The company only turned five in September of this year, so we consider this a pretty huge endorsement of what we’re trying to do: bring premium craft spirits to people that want and deserve better.
Cono Sur Bicicleta Viognier from Chile, $1.50 off at $9.95, is one of those wines which regularly re-appears on the LTO’s. There is fine value here, with good complexity, peach/apricot fruit notes, and a crisp finish. It earned a respectable ‘Silver’ at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.
De Bortoli Wines has won the inaugural Winery Innovator of the Year trophy at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), being recognised for the unique packaging on its newly released Rosé Rosé.
A Ningxia-based boutique winery won the award at this year's International Wine & Spirit Competition as Chinese wine and spirits are seeking recognition at one of the world's most prestigious spirit competitions.
