London’s Guildhall hosts IWSC awards and competition

The International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) and its Annual Awards Banquet were held recently at the City of London’s Guildhall.

The Competition Banquet also marks an end to the association’s outgoing president’s period of influence and the beginning of the next president’s year, with Christopher Blandy taking over for 2017 as president from Matteo Lunelli.

During Lunelli’s year at the IWSC, the competition saw a record number of entries with big winners including Masters of Malt, Waitrose and Nyetimber taking trophies for Online Retailer of the Year, Supermarket of the Year and English Wine Producer respectively.

Representing an ever-growing field, underdogs such as Lidl and Aldi stole the show from tough competition in the Retail Spirit Buyer and Innovator of the Year categories.
