International Wine & Spirit Competition
Established in 1969, the IWSC was the first competition of its kind, set up to seek out, reward and promote the world’s best wines, spirits and liqueurs. Now in its 50th year, the IWSC’s relentless pursuit of excellence underpins every aspect of the competition today.
The IWSC is set apart by the formidable reputation of its judging process. Panels are made up of carefully selected industry experts including Master Distillers, Masters of Wine, wine and spirit buyers and sommeliers, WSET qualified educators and respected wine and spirit journalists. Every wine and spirit is blind-tasted and assessed on its own merit within the context of its class.
Currently receiving entries from over 90 countries, the IWSC is truly international in its reach and recognition, and the IWSC’s partners around the world work throughout the year to drive awareness and promote winners to both trade and consumer audiences.
