Alternative drinks

The IWSC’s 2023 Alternative Drinks Award had a tough time reaching the dizzy heights of our record-breaking year of entries in 2022, but just as the industry keeps growing for the low/no, RTDs and mixer categories, so do our awards!

With the sheer number of drinks judged this year, and the number of medals awarded, it only seemed right for the IWSC to create three new producer trophies to recognise these growing categories. Joining our RTD Producer Trophy, that was created in 2022, new to 2023 the IWSC will be awarding a Low & No Wine Producer Trophy, a Low & No Spirits Producer Trophy and a Mixer Producer Trophy.
