Another winning streak in Japan

Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition: Wilson & Morgan received a prize for four entries.

While only started in 2019, the Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition is already considered one of the most influential spirits contests all over the world. The reason for its importance is simple: it involves a large number of industry experts in its panel of judges (259 tasters for this edition!), and it is organized in a very structured and professional way. First a session of remote tastings at the beginning of the year, then a second session in Tokyo at the end of spring: all the spirits are tasted blindly, each of them is evaluated by at least eight jurors, and the result is complete fairness and impartiality of the results. Only taste matters in the end!
And since we are quite confident of our own taste in selecting whisky casks… well, it’s nice to see that the Japanese experts agree with us!
So, once again, we came home with a nice handful of medals… Of all the 832 spirits that entered the competition, Wilson & Morgan received a prize for all of the four entries which had been submitted.
