Connoisseurs and producers of wines and spirits from around the world arrived at City of London’s Guildhall on 16 November for the annual International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) and its awards banquet.

The competition aims to establish the world’s finest wines and spirits in a number of categories, including the newly introduced Wine Label Design Award and Vodka and Tonic Award.

Guests gathered in the tunnels under Guildhall for a two-hour tasting session of all the award nominees for the evening, followed by a five-course meal in the venue’s Great Hall.
