MUCH excitement, folks. Last week we were named Icons of Whisky’s Online Retailer of the Year 2019 – and we’re still not over it!
On Thursday we donned our glad rags and headed up to London for the Whisky Magazine Awards. As did a whole host of distillers, brand ambassadors and bartenders – just being there was super exciting.
The likes of Teeling Whiskey 24 Years Old Vintage Reserve, Four Roses 130th Anniversary 2018 Limited Edition Small Batch, and Hibiki 21 Years Old all took home major awards (for World’s Best Single Malt, World’s Best Bourbon and World’s Best Blended Whisky respectively). Tobermory and Bunnahabhain parent Distell won Distiller of the Year, and Angela D’Orazio of Mackmyra and Mike Miyamoto from Suntory were inducted into Whisky Magazine’s Hall of Fame. It was a cracking evening of great whiskies and wonderful company. What more could you want?
THEN we were named Icons of Whisky’s Online Retailer of the Year 2019!
This means so much to us. The Icons of Whisky accolades are voted for by the drinks trade, and it’s incredibly special to be recognised by our peers. And it’s the seventh time in eight years we’ve won Online Retailer of the Year. The whole team is still buzzing days on!
Most importantly though, a HUGE thank you to you, our epic customers. We love bring delicious, delicious drinks to the world, and we literally couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for supporting us, sticking with us, and making us your booze purveyor of choice. Here’s to you!
