What Are The World Brandy Awards?

The World Brandy Awards are part of the prestigious World Drinks Awards programme, launched in 2007 with the World Whiskies Awards and World Beer Awards. Presented by TheDrinksReport.com, the world’s No. 1 online resource for drinks professionals. The World Brandy Awards select, reward and promote the best Brandy Taste and Design to consumers and trade across the globe.

Who Should Enter The World Brandy Awards?

Distillers, bottlers, producers, agents, designers, design agents, packaging agencies, brand agencies, importers, wholesalers and retailers of any brandy from anywhere in the world. With entrance facilities in Europe, the US and Asia, the World Brandy Awards provides a truly international service to entrants.

What Are The Categories?

There are two groups of Categories; Taste and Design.


The TASTE categories are based upon the commonly held brandy groupings which define both the style and process of brandy production. Many of the Brandy categories are also assessed in their respective subcategories. A full list of categories is below, with their detailed definitions available here


There are up to six Design categories in which an individual product can be judged, each reflecting the major product or display areas of the market. A full list of categories is below, with their detailed definitions available here

What Awards Can Be Won?

Awards can be won in both Taste and Design categories


The World Brandy Awards are judged in heats. In each sub-category an entry has the opportunity to win a Gold, Silver or Bronze. The Gold medal winner becomes the best in that sub-category, qualifying to become a category winner, and then ultimately the World’s Best Brandy.


A brand has the opportunity to win any of the design categories, from which is chosen the World’s Best Brandy Design. From these category winners we then identify the World’s Best Brandy Design Agency.
