Marketing resources available to award-winning producers

Digital artwork

Add the IWSC medal to all your marketing collateral (social media posts, websites, emails, adverts, etc.) to show both trade and consumers that your spirit is one of the best in the world. You can download standard resolution medal artwork for free or purchase high res versions online (£145).

Printing License

If you wish to incorporate the IWSC medal sticker on your label or produce your own sticker labels, you can do so by purchasing the digital artwork as well as a printing license per 1,000 labels to be printed.

1-10,000 labels = £62.00 per 1,000

11-25, 000 labels = £53.00 per 1,000

26-49,000 labels = £43.00 per 1,000

50-99,000 labels = £37.00 per 1,000

100,000+ labels = £31.00 per 1,000


Our medal stickers will make your bottle stand out on a crowded shelf and can influence customers' buying decisions. Spirits awarded a gold or silver have the option to use our standard medals or stickers that detail their individual score. There are 1,000 stickers per roll.

Sticker pricing:

  • 1-10 rolls = £62.00 per roll
  • 11-25 rolls = £53.00 per roll
  • 26-49 rolls = £43.00 per roll
  • 50-99 rolls = £37.00 per roll
  • 100+ rolls = £31.00 per roll


We’ll send all medal holders their official certificate, if requested at the time of entering, but you can also download them from our website for free. And, of course, you’ll want to frame your award and display it at trade and consumer events, as well as in your distillery tasting room for all to see.

Tasting notes

Every award-winning spirit comes with our official tasting note. We recommend using these comments in all your promotions, marketing activities, on your website, at consumer and trade events, and on shelves, to boost the standing of you spirit.

Marketing assets

Every winner receives a toolkit filled with free marketing assets, from social media posts and website banners, to email signatures. Why not create bottle tags to show consumers that you're an IWSC award winner?
