International Spirits Award

Susanne Bauer

Spirits have been distilled and drunk for centuries now and the occasions to do so are manifold. The choice of spirits is huge, ranging from clear schnapps through to fruit brandies and liqueurs. In many countries, spirits are an established part of a cultured lifestyle and have their place in retailers' ranges. It was against this background that the ISW International Spirits Award was launched in 2004, with the aim of strengthening the position of spirits and giving them new momentum. The International Spirits Award is the name of a respected and well-organised event. With the help of the special ISW publication in which all winners of gold and silver medals are listed, consumers are provided with valuable orientation support.
