Master of Malt received six awards at the World Whiskies Awards 2013, including the Global Icons of Whisky award for “Whisky Retailer of the Year – Online” for the second consecutive year.
Whisky Magazine held its annual World Whiskies Awards at the Waldorf Hotel in London on the 21st of March 2013 where honours were presented across multiple categories for achievements in the world of whisky during the previous year. The Global Icons of Whisky, the Icons of Whisky, the World Whiskies Design Awards, and the World Whiskies Awards comprised 23 categories in which a select few were awarded the highest honours for innovation, design, liquid, and retail success. During the ceremony, the Master of Malt team was presented with an astounding six awards, including:

Other nominees in these categories included such renowned retailers and producers as The Whisky Exchange, Jeroboams, The Whisky Shop, La Maison du Whisky, Irish Distillers (Pernod Ricard), The Edrington Group, Compass Box, and many other notable and award-winning companies.
Sales Director Ben Ellefsen noted, “We were delighted to have been recognised by the world’s leading whisky publication for the second year in a row.”
Master of Malt received the Retailer of the Year – Online within the Icons of Whisky in 2013, but the 2013 Awards marked the first time it received a World Whiskies Award for a liquid it produces. As Ben remarked, “This has the supremely important quality of being the only award that we have achieved so far from Whisky Magazine for *liquid*, as opposed to ‘doing things’.”
