I was delighted for the Inside the Cask blog to have been shortlisted for the 2nd year in a row for the Whisky Magazine’s Icons of Whisky Scotland awards. This is really gratifying as the blog has been created with the aim of sharing information and helping others, whether already working or looking to work in our industry.

Congratulations to all involved and everyone nominated and shortlisted including the Icons of Whisky Scotland Communicator of the Year winner: Moa Nilsson.

These awards have the aim to celebrate the best people and places in the sector – not just the distilleries and the teams that work in them, but also the individuals and businesses that work to support and promote them and their products.

Although the Covid-19 pandemic means that the awards could not be presented in person this year, the Icons of Whisky team hosted five virtual presentations to announce the regional winners in America, Australia, Ireland, Scotland, and the rest of the world.

These awards presentations were broadcast on Facebook and YouTube in the week beginning 1 February, so viewers around the globe could tune in and discover the winners in their region.

You could also join the conversation on social media with the hashtag #WhiskyMagAwards. For more information about the Icons of Whisky awards go to www.iconsofwhisky.com.
