Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Compeition (TWSC)

The Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition (TWSC) is an esteemed event aimed at promoting the excellence of premium whiskies and spirits both within Japan and on an international stage. Its primary objective is to contribute to the growth and development of the alcohol industry by showcasing and recognizing the highest standards of quality.

Established in 2019, the Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition has quickly gained recognition as a prominent spirits competition. It encompasses a wide range of spirits, including whisky, rum, gin, tequila, vodka, brandy, and more. The competition draws upon the extensive knowledge and expertise of the Japan Whisky Research Centre and its network of spirits connoisseurs. It was conceived to address the need for a legitimate platform within Japan to evaluate and appreciate Japanese whisky, which has garnered significant acclaim worldwide.

The judging panel for the Western Spirits Division of the competition comprises primarily of esteemed bartenders hailing from various regions of Japan, along with professionals engaged in the liquor wholesale and manufacturing sectors. In order to ensure impartiality, blind tastings are conducted, meaning that judges evaluate the entries without knowledge of the brand or producer. Each spirit is assessed and assigned a score of up to 100 points, reflecting the judges’ expert judgment and discernment.

The Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition serves as a vital platform for both established and emerging spirits brands to showcase their craftsmanship and to receive recognition for their exceptional quality. By celebrating and rewarding excellence, the competition plays a pivotal role in driving the growth and innovation of the alcohol industry, while further enhancing the reputation of Japanese whisky and other spirits globally.

Through its commitment to promoting high standards and its meticulous blind-tasting evaluation process, the Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition continues to establish itself as a prestigious event within the spirits industry, fostering appreciation and encouraging the pursuit of excellence in whisky and spirits production.
