IWSC Online Retailer Trophy

We’re beyond thrilled to announce that we’ve been awarded the Online Retailer of the Year Trophy at the International Wine & Spirit Competition for the second time in three years!

Just days after our last pieces of exciting awards news from the DEAs and Icons of Whisky – and capping off a truly extraordinary year – last night we received the Online Retailer of the Year Trophy at the 47th annual International Wine & Spirit Competition Awards Banquet.

This is the second time we’ve received this extremely prestigious IWSC title in the trophy’s three year history, having picked up the inaugural online retailer award in 2014. To be recognised once again by such a well-respected authority across all of wine and spirits is an incedible, slightly dizzying acheivement, and one that obviously makes us burst with pride!

Online Retailer of the Year
International Wine & Spirit Competition 2016

“An ecommerce handbook for success… (Master of Malt has) grown into an online retailer with a knack for establishing and predicting consumer trends and niche product opportunity. As a result, despite its name, Master of Malt now offers its customers Cognac, Rum, Armagnac, Gin, Tequila and Vodka, as well as the opportunity to Blend Your Own Whisky, Build Your Own Tasting Set, and your own Advent Calendar. Alongside its expanding product offering, Master of Malt’s website includes a ‘Gift Finder’ as well as Free UK Shipping when one item in your basket qualifies. As a result, the IWSC judges could not fault their user friendly business model and extensive product offering.”

– The IWSC

2016 has seen Master of Malt collect trophies at the Global Icons of Whisky, the eCommerce Awards, the Digital Entrepreneur Awards and now the IWSC. It’s further recognition of our tireless work to offer a superior customer experience and we’ll just keep working harder! A *huge* thank you, as always, to all of our amazing customers for your continued support that makes all of this possible. 2017 here we come…
