The W Club Members' Choice Awards

We asked brands to send us their best whiskies and asked our members to give each one an honest rating, free from biases of branding, style of whisky, or price. After months of judging in blind tastings by W Club members, in our stores up and down the country, we finally have our results. Presenting the winners and gold medallists of the first ever W Club Awards!
