Retailer Awards

Independent Wine & Spirits Retailer of the Year 2018

Are you an independent wine and spirit retailer?

This year, the IWSC wants to open the Independent Wine & Spirit Retailer of the Year Award to those businesses with a single premises only…

This award recognises and rewards the key role played by independent merchants in their local community, encouraging the understanding and sales of quality wines and spirits. Entries are judged on the quality of their range, service and display, including value added, promotional events and tastings, and their digital/social presence.

Here’s your chance to get the recognition you deserve. All you have to do is complete the form to register your interest for the competition. If you fit the criteria, you'll be sent some information to share with your customers to encourage them to vote for you! The top five entrants will then go forward to round 2…

Wine Importer of the Year & Spirit Distributor of the Year

The Wine Importer of the Year and Spirit Distributor of the Year Awards are judged in two stages. First, they will be judged on a selection of their portfolio in the competition which showcases the breadth and depth of their range (in terms of quality, price point and regions). Then, these results will be reviewed by a panel which will also take into consideration supporting materials which consider specialisms, events, education and marketing.
