Master of Malt has been named the Icons of Whisky Global Online Retailer of the Year 2019, announced last night (28 March) at the Whisky Magazine Awards ceremony in London.
The Icons of Whisky awards showcase and celebrate the accomplishments and achievements of key figures in the whisky industry. The winners are decided by votes from members of the drinks trade, with final decisions made by the Paragraph Publishing editorial panel.
The Icons of Whisky Online Retailer of the Year award means a lot to the whole Master of Malt team – it’s incredible to be recognised as the world’s best online retailer by our peers in the drinks trade.
We’re constantly striving to make Master of Malt the most useful, most informative and all-round best eCommerce platform in drinks, and to win this award for the seventh time is remarkable. A huge thank you goes to our epic customers – we love what we do, but we couldn’t do it without you!

2019 is proving to be a stellar year for Master of Malt. The Icons of Whisky win comes after the retailer retained its Icons of Gin Online Retailer of the Year title in February.
It was also named Online Retailer of the Year 2019 at the Drinks Retailing Awards, and picked up two trophies at the UK eCommerce Awards earlier in March: Food & Drink eCommerce Website of the Year, and eCommerce Social Campaign of the Year for everyone’s favourite supernatural, omniscient, festive, heavily-bearded being, #WhiskySanta.
