World Whiskies Awards Winners Announced
Dewar’s, Archie Rose and Spirit of Hven amongst this year’s world’s best
In an understandable and necessary change to tradition, the 2020 World Whiskies Awards were revealed on 26 March, not in the wonderful surroundings of the Honourable Artillery Company, London, but through social media and, of course Whisky Magazine itself.
The shortlist of country winners was announced on 5 February, after the final tasting which was attended by more than 50 industry experts and included, for the first time, the presentation of the Icons of Whisky Rest of World winners.
Rob Allanson, Chair of Judges said “What an exceptional year it has been in the World Whiskies Awards, with a huge number of extremely high quality entries, from all corners of the world. Some of the smaller producers have done very well, making some of the bigger brands sit up and take notice. In the end, amid so much worthy competition, the winners can really claim to have achieved enormous things this year. As ever, I owe a big debt of gratitude to the judging panels around the globe, without whose skill and knowledge we would be a great deal poorer and less informed. “
