WHO WE ARE

The aim of the IWSC is to award excellence in international wines and spirits worldwide, encouraging recognition for quality drinks.

The IWSC, also known as the International Wine & Spirit Competition, sets the international benchmark for quality. For half a century the International Wine & Spirit Competition has been recognising and rewarding the very best wines and spirits in the world. Today we have hundred of global experts judging our awards for seven months of the year. We have moved the centre of our wine judging operation to an iconic venue in Chinatown in the heart of London. We are also proud to have a dedicated spirits tasting venue and cellar.

Coronavirus - information for entrants and judges

In response to the current global situation, we at IWSC have been actively adjusting and working to develop the best way to put both our customers, experts and team first. Find out more.
