Five whiskies created exclusively for The Whisky Club have landed a gold medal at 2024’s International Wine and Spirits Competition.

Founded in 1969, the International Wine and Spirits Competition tastes, scores, recognises and crowns the world's best drinks and receives tens of thousands of entries from more than 90 countries. 

This year, around 100 international judges tasted more than 4,000 spirit entries from across the globe. The panel included master blenders, master distillers, spirits educators, consultants and renowned spirits communicators.

The IWSC Scotch Whisky Awards is overseen by one of the most respected figures in the Scotch whisky industry, Richard “The Nose” Paterson OBE, who has been master blender at Whyte & Mackay for over fifty years.

“The overall quality of this year’s entries is very high,” said Dawn Davies, IWSC Spirits Judging Committee member.

We're absolutely thrilled with the result. A massive thanks to all of our Members for helping us to achieve these incredible accolades. It’s because we're able to get the world's best whisky makers to create exclusive, award-winning whiskies just for us.

The win follows last year’s gold medal haul, where our exclusive Westward Whiskey Tempranillo Single Barrel, Paul John Port Cask, Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Amontillado Sherry Cask, Glenburgie 17 Year Old and the Bushmills 2012 Burgundy Cask all picked up gold.

Or could it be a Lagavulin Offerman Edition? Or maybe a Nikka Miyagikyo 12YO — it’s a museum piece, and you’re looking at paying $1,000 a bottle if you can find one. Maybe it’s a Glenmorangie Malaga Cask, or one of our more recent trophies like the Glenmorangie Amontillado Cask or Talisker. Or The Lakes, also fetching over $2,000 for a bottle.

We’re even including some of our ultra-premium Add Ins. That means you could get your hands on the likes of Glenfiddich Grand Couronne worth $850, a Balvenie Red Rose worth $450, a Glenrothes 16YO Oloroso Single Cask worth $475 or a 38YO Talisker 1984 Prima & Ultima worth $5,600!
