London, 27th July 2017: The IWSC’s Annual Spirits Tasting has lifted the lid on the key trends shaping what we’ll be drinking in the year ahead. The annual event, held last night at London’s Vintners’ Hall, saw more than 200 of the competition’s top-awarded spirits showcased to guests and judges, amid a record number of entries, in the history of the competition, from all over the globe.
We are pleased to announce the 2016 Spirit results and trophies, revealing a record year for entries into the Competition, with a 17% increase in entries, lead by the Scotch, Worldwide Whiskey and Gin categories. The top 200 winners will be showcased at the annual Spirits Showcase event, run in partnership with the Worshipful Company of Distillers.
Following the huge success of the Gin & Tonic and Bloody Mary mixer awards, we have once again teamed up with Fever Tree Mixers to add two brand new categories to the competition – Best Vodka & Tonic, and Best Vodka & Mediterranean Tonic.
