Why the IWSC?

" The response to our award from gin drinkers in Finland and farther beyond was fantastic, and our sales over the years have grown over five-fold. "

Miika Lipiäinen  /  Kyrö Distillery, Finland  /  Gold and silver medals 2019

" IWSC is the pinnacle. We work hard to encourage brands to join our portfolio, so for them to see that we’ve won this award is very helpful. "

David Hood  /  Spirit Cartel, UK  /  Spirits Distributor 2019

" IWSC helped us to realise that we were on the right track at such an early and influential time in our growth as a craft spirits producer. "

Michael Harris  /  Mountain Distilling Company, Australia  /  Gold 2019
