WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The IWSC Scotch Whisky Awards is overseen by one of the most respected figures in the Scotch whisky industry, Richard Paterson OBE.
Scotch whisky is a diverse and esteemed category of spirits known for its quality, craftsmanship, and regional distinctiveness. The IWSC accepts entries across a range of Scotch categories:
Whisky highball awards
We're looking for the world's best whisky highball. The whisky highball will comprise one part whisky to three parts Franklin & Sons Soda Water; no ice or garnish is used, and the drink will be tasted blind in a Riedel glass.
Whisky & ginger ale awards
New to 2024, we have added Whisky & Ginger Ale to our mixer awards. A specialist judging panel will assess how well each whisky pairs with Franklin & Sons' Ginger Ale. The Whisky & Ginger Ale will comprise one part whisky to three parts ginger ale; no ice or garnish is used, and the drink will be tasted blind.
Entry into the Mixer add-on Awards is £139 per whisky.
