MEET THE JUDGES

Recruited for their unrivalled expertise, the IWSC judges are at the heart of our awards

Our judges assess each wine or spirit methodically to ensure a fair and true result, tasting and discussing each entry alongside the rest of the panel. Our panels consist of a mix of wine and spirit experts, such as leading sommeliers and distillers, influencers from every sector of the drinks trade, buyers, importers and distributors. The IWSC also runs an Associate Judging Programme in partnership with the WSET and Plumpton College, offering new industry talent the opportunity to gain judging experience.
