The World Whiskies Awards is serious business where it's an honour for distilleries across the globe to be chosen to compete, much less to actually win a category. Well, the winners have been announced and the list features brands from the US, Japan, Canada and the UK with the Japanese whisky proving it's a serious contender in the industry.
