How to enter


Entering your wines or spirits into the IWSC couldn’t be easier

Below you will find all the information you need to submit your samples for tasting by our expert team of judges. If anything is unclear, please let us know, and a member of our team will be only too happy to help. Don't forget to take a quick look at our terms and conditions. You can also read this page in French, Italian and Spanish.

What does the entry process involve?

1. Fill out the entry and payment forms online (or send them to us via email or post). These will only take around five minutes to complete.
2. Pack up your samples with a copy of your entry form (we need four bottles for wine, sake, vermouth, cider and low/no entries, or two bottles of spirits.)
3. Print the bar code label that is available on your IWSC account page, and attach one to each package of bottles.
4. Send your bottles to us (visit our shipping page to view your options).
5. That's it! Once we receive your samples, they will be reviewed by expert judging panels and we will share their evaluation with you shortly afterwards.
