The IWSC Annual Awards Banquet returns to Guildhall, London, for our annual celebration of excellence in wine & spirit making on Wednesday 14th November 2018.

The awards ceremony brings together the elite of the wine and spirits industry to celebrate the achievements of the year, and includes with a tasting of all Gold 2017 medal winners, a champagne reception, lavish 5-course meal and awards presentations throughout the evening as well as an after-party for those wanting to continue the celebrations. The original aim of the Competition was to award excellence to wines and spirits worldwide and this aim remains the same today, encouraging recognition for quality products.

Entries into the Competition are received from nearly 90 countries worldwide and each sample is judged according to its class and treated with the same care and consideration in the Competition’s dedicated tasting premises.

The Competition is proud to set the international benchmark for quality remaining unique in the crowded world of drinks competitions with dedicated tasting premises, a permanent onsite cellar and over 400 global experts judging products for 7 months of the year.

“It’s spectacular, fantastic evening to come here and enjoy such historic surroundings. It’s a fantastic endorsement of the quality of any producer, and really helps in the market place to differentiate your products from the millions of others.” Verity Milns, Corporate Communications Manager, Liberty Wines.

“It’s a great chance to meet people you know and get to know other people, and it's a chance for the team to enjoy ourselves. The IWSC is the big one – the Oscars for the drinks industry, so it’s a really big deal to win an award." - Martin Kinnear, Finance Manager, Beam Suntory.
