The Icons of Whisky are firstly presented regionally; in America, Australia, China, India, Ireland, Scotland and Rest of World. Those successful within their region then compete for the global title.

The Icons of Whisky Awards are a celebration of the years of hard work that go into every bottle. From the distillers themselves and brand ambassadors, to visitor centre managers, bars, bar tenders and the industry’s communicators – a great deal of craftsmanship, skill and knowledge are imparted at each stage of the process. This is our way of saying thank you to the individuals and producers for their dedication to each innovative release, visitor experience or expert retail service, delivered in a tireless fashion.

We are delighted to say that the 2022 Icons of Whisky are now open for entries through our newly design web portal. Find out more here.
