Public Voting Open Now! – IWSC Online Retailer of the Year Award

IWSC Online Retailer

Readers of this blog and those who follow us on social media will know that we’ve been fortunate enough to win an astonishing number of awards over the last few years, many of them retailer awards within and even beyond the drinks industry. When we do, we always make sure to thank you all. Quite simply, without you – our customers – none of it would be possible.

Last year we were able to make the shortlist for Online Retailer of the Year Award at the International Wine & Spirit Competition as a direct result of your votes. We then went on to take home the inaugural Online Retailer Trophy, something we’re incredibly proud of.

Public Voting Open Now! – IWSC Best Online Retailer Award 2014

IWSC best indie

It always means an awful lot to us when we win retailer awards at Icons of Whisky (Whisky Mag), or indeed the eCommerce Awards (that one wasn’t even limited to the drinks industry!), and when we do win awards like these, we always make sure to thank all of you, our beautiful customers, for making it possible. We really do love you all.

Fortunately for us, you seem to rather like us too, as we get to see every single day as we read through your amazing feedback! It makes the jobs we all do here at MoM all the more rewarding to see just how much you enjoy using the site for your delicious drinks purchases. Now, if you are of the opinion that we’re a rather good retailer (one worthy of awards, perhaps) then there is one little thing you could do for us…

Our International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014 Winnings

International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014

The folks here at MoM Towers aren’t going to win the World Cup anytime soon. Our team, Bitter Bastards FC, are just a few players short of a full squad and therefore wouldn’t qualify, so the German team has nothing to be worried about… Yet. We’re also not going to win Wimbledon, despite a small subset of us being pretty gosh-darn good at squash (they’re basically the same sport, one just has more passive aggressive connotations and a wall). Oscars? Probably not. Grammys? Unlikely. Nobel Peace Prize? Doubtful at best. Medals for making stunning drinks? Now you’re talking!

That’s right, that little preamble is leading up to us proudly showing off the medals our products scooped up at the prestigious International Wine & Spirits Competition 2014. We’re always immensely excited and grateful when the products we make are commended by the highly knowledgeable tasters behind these awarding bodies – it really does mean the world to us.

Whenever we pick up a retailing award or trophy we always make sure to thank you, our customers, for all your support. We really do love all of you, you’re all marvellous and attractive people. Well done you.

We also know that many of you think of us rather fondly, too, thanks to the incredible feedback you leave us. It makes us blush.

Oops!… We did it again: IWSC Results (International Wine & Spirits Competition)

Master of Malt 30 Year Old Speyside IWSC 2013 Tasting

Another week, another set of awards results announced! This time from the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC), “the premier competition of its kind in the world”. (I know, I know, they can’t all be the best – and they do indeed have similar sounding names – but this is another one of the really, really BIG competitions. Important stuff.)

As well as the usual Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, there are also Gold Outstanding and Silver Outstanding Medals at the IWSC, with a huge score of 90-100 out of 100 required for a Gold Medal and Gold Outstanding Medals only being awarded at the judges’ discretion! Welcome to big school!
