Whiskies of the World Awards

We recognize the best whiskies from around the globe

Introducing the Whiskies of the World Awards, a worldwide whisky competition produced in conjunction with the IWSC (International Wine & Spirit Competition), the most prestigious, largest, and longest running Spirits competition in the world.

The WoW Awards is a competition with a difference;
• The judging panel is comprised of key influencers in the Texan spirits market; a specialist team of experts including peer recognized bartenders, mixologists, spirits reviewers and buyers. The judges have been handpicked to blind taste all entries ensuring that all products entered are judged by taste makers in the Texan drinks industry, the third largest US whisky market  
• The awards are given out by a recognized and respected whisky festival ensuring that winning products are showcased to an actively engaged consumer and trade audience 
•     As whisky specialists, the Whiskies of the World team, combined with the expertise of the IWSC, ensure all products entered into the Whiskies of the World Awards are treated with the upmost care and consideration throughout the judging process; from delivery to tasting, through to results
