The World Whiskies Awards is a highly anticipated event in the spirit industry. It brings together whisky enthusiasts, industry professionals and distinguished experts to celebrate the diversity and craftsmanship of the whisky industry. Held annually, this prestigious competition recognises and honours whiskies from around the globe.

The first celebration took place in the beautiful Signet Library in Edinburgh, at the end of last year. The winners of the World Whiskies Awards Scotland 2024 as well as the Icons of Whisky Scotland and the two new Hall of Fame inductees were announced During the Whisky Magazine Awards 2024 gala. On this night Whisky Magazine was also celebrating its spectacular 25th anniversary.
