Postby rebeccaparagraph » Tue Mar 22, 2016 1:41 pm

The finest products and individuals were celebrated at Whisky Magazine’s most prestigious awards ceremony at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London on Thursday 17 March 2016. The Managing Editor of Whisky Magazine, Mr Rupert Wheeler, co-hosted a dinner for the industry alongside comedian and presenter, Fred MacAulay, Whisky Magazine Contributor, Joel Harrison and TheDrinksReport Editor, Felicity Murray. Guests made the journey from as far as Japan, Taiwan, Australia and America to join the celebrations. The evening began with the presentation of the Icons of Whisky, followed by the World Whiskies Awards and concluded with the Hall of Fame.

Mr Wheeler says: “This year has seen a record number of entries into our World Whiskies Awards and the Icons of Whisky continue to grow with the addition of new categories. I was delighted to have met so many guests last night, all of which make the whisky industry a pleasure to be a part of. The evening went extremely well and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the judges and sponsors of all of our awards. We look forward to doing it all over again next year.”
