THE BEST OF THE BEST

Brands that achieve Gold medals in our competition are then put forward to win the overall trophy for their specific category.

The International Wine and Spirit Competition awards trophies in a variety of categories including Pinot Noir, Scotch whisky, dry gin, mixers and packaging. We also award the top producers from each region, such as France, Spain and Italy. The rigorous judging process means that only the very best products and producers receive trophies at the IWSC Awards Banquet which takes place each November.
