Highlights From The World Whiskies Awards 2022

Arushi Sakhuja
When it comes to the world of Whisky, the ultimate say is by jury present at the World Whiskies Awards, an annual celebration, to commend the best and brightest in the world of whisky. Held at the Honourable Artillery Company in London on 24 March 2022, this was the first time since 2020, that the awards ceremony had returned to London as an in-person event.

From bartenders to brand ambassadors, retailers to visitor attraction managers, the Icons of Whisky awards honour those who have worked tirelessly to produce and promote whisky. The awards are designed to commend the best whiskies in 16 categories covering style and production methods.

With a series of rounds, the first round of blind tastings is judged by independent spirits experts, from their scores, a winner is selected for each category and country, and gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded. Each country winner then competes in round two for the title of World’s Best in each category. LuxeBook takes you through all the major highlights from the world of Whisky.
