William Grant & Sons has been named Distiller of the Year at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) hosted in London last week.

This year’s win marks the sixth time William Grant & Sons has won the award.

A spokesperson for IWSC described the win as a fantastic achievement.

“They have impeccably maintained the quality of their liquid and in some cases on brands well over a century old,” the spokesperson said.

The IWSC has been running for 47 years and received entries from nearly 90 different countries in 2016.

Discount supermarket chain, Aldi, won innovator of the year at the awards for its work in making budget-priced wine available for its customers. Aldi’s competitor and potential entrant into the Australian supermarket industry, Lidl, won Retail Spirt Buyer of the Year for its recent boost in range variety.
