In our blog post last month we shared the exciting news that we had won the Icons of Whisky Multiple Outlet Retailer of the Year in our region, and that we would be attending the global awards ceremony to be held in a few weeks.
Well, in a rather glamourous whisky gala in London we were absolutely thrilled, and somewhat stunned to say the least, to hear WhiskyBrother being called up on stage to receive the Global Award for Multiple Outlet Retailer for 2023!
This is our second global award at Icons of Whisky; we won Single Outlet Retailer in 2020, but the ceremony was cancelled due to COVID. So it was an immense honour to be called up on stage and receive the award in a room filled with whisky luminaries and icons from across the world.
Since we opened our doors 10 years ago, our motivation and dedication has never waivered away from the products, people and places we love so much. We are incredibly honored to receive this recognition, and it was a truly humbling (and surreal) experience to not only represent our "little" whisky company, but also South Africa and the SA whisky community on the global stage
This huge achievement is of course not possible without wonderful people: our brilliant team who have sacrificed plenty over the years, the amazing suppliers/producers/brands who choose to work with us, and our loyal customers. A sincere thank you to each of you who have believed and supported us along the way, we can't wait to continue our whisky journey alongside you! 🥃
We are incredibly proud of what we have accomplished, thankful for the opportunity to do so, and excited to continue pushing the boundaries and bringing more crazy whisky projects to the glasses of whisky lovers.
(And believe us, you can expect more... we have another project planned for announcement in the coming month 🤩)
