MORE IWSC AWARDS

The IWSC not only recognises excellence in wines and spirits, but also individuals, businesses and brands.

In addition to our standard Entry Categories, the IWSC takes nominations for a number of Achievement Awards and Business Awards. Entrants of our main competition can also enter their products into our Spirit & Mixer Awards or the IWSC Design & Media Awards.

Achievement Awards

Today, the competition not only recognises excellence in wines and spirits, but also individuals, with awards such as Wine Communicator of the Year and Outstanding Achievement in the Scotch Whisky Industry.
