The IWSC is delighted to be partnering with specialist e-commerce platform, Spirits Kiosk. This new partnership will offer our 2022 spirit medal winners the opportunity to be listed on the online shop for discerning drinkers.

Award winners already listed by Spirits Kiosk will automatically gain maximum exposure for their 2022 medals, featuring them in curated selections and displaying their medals on their product page. There will also be free listings offered to all Gold and Gold-Outstanding spirit winners that are available in the UK.

Spirits Kiosk is founded on the key principle of Conscious Consumption, which advocates that buying something is an endorsement of what it is, who makes it and what it stands for. This principle is further strengthened by the partnership.

Emile Ward, Head Buyer for Spirits Kiosk commented: “Partnering with the IWSC will enable us to bring award-winning spirits to our customers while highlighting their qualities to them even further. The IWSC offers one of the most rigorous and fair blind-judging processes for spirits in the world. Having had the spirits independently assessed by a panel of industry-leading experts means we can confidently endorse them on our platform, ensuring there has been complete transparency and integrity for our consumer base.”

IWSC's CEO, Christelle Guibert added, “We’re excited to embark on this partnership. There are many synergies between Spirits Kiosk and the IWSC around the importance of consumer education and empowering drinkers to find high-quality, award-winning spirits and we’re thrilled to be working together to bring those values to life.”

As Enotria & Coe’s B2C outlet, Spirits Kiosk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to sourcing vibrant spirits, helping the company to list brands that also become available to their B2B customers and creates an opportunity for those brands to go on to achieve success in UK’s on-trade market.


IWSC Spirits Awards entries close on 24 January 2022.

Medal winners will be contacted following the results announcement on 16 March 2022 to discuss next steps relating to Spirits Kiosk listing.
