Let’s face it: whiskey competitions are as common as Cardi B singles. Still, we hope this new one is the first of many. The inaugural Scottish Whisky Awards, which recognize business smarts as well as great-tasting drams, recently announced 52 companies and 97 whiskies as finalists.

Up for Distillery of the Year, the top prize among the 18 categories: Craigellachie Distillery, GlenAllachie Distillery, Glen Scotia Distillery, Highland Park Distillery and Loch Lomond Distillery. GlenAllachie is also a contender for Newcomer of the Year, along with Arbikie Distillery, Glasgow Distillery and Kingsbarns Distillery. 

The winners, determined by a 32-member judging panel, will be announced September 5 in Edinburgh. To help make history, get tickets here starting July 12.🥃
