Icons of Whisky America Results

Celebrating the finest people and places in the whisky industry

This has been an exciting year for the Icons of Whisky awards with the launch of an all-new nominations and voting process.

For 2015, we kicked off proceedings with the annual Icons of Whisky America and invited producers, retailers, distributors and importers to identify companies and individuals who are deserving of an Icons title.

It has been another great year for the bourbon and whiskey industry, and we hope that you will join us in celebrating the companies and individuals recognised in the American stage of Icons of Whisky 2015.
