Online Scotch Whisky retailer, TheWhiskyBarrel.com is honoured to have won the Queen's Award for Enterprise 2019.

The family run company in the Kingdom of Fife is one of 200 organisations nationally to be recognised with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise this year.

TheWhiskyBarrel.com was established in 2007 and since then has gone from strength to strength and become a World-renowned online retailer of premium Scotch whisky. The company collaborates with independent whisky merchants and micro distillers to make Scotch Whisky and Single Cask Rum available to international customers, primarily in North America and Asia-Pacific.

Managing Director, Alastair Brown, said “we are delighted that the company has been recognised for its achievements in and contributions to international trade. Winning this award is a great boost for our family business as we continue to take exciting new steps to further push the business on.”

TheWhiskyBarrel.com continues to grow rapidly and further developing its own range of original and exclusive cask bottlings.


The Queen’s Award can be displayed for up to five years and, being from Her Majesty, is regarded as one of the most exclusive and prestigious awards for a UK company to win. It will be presented by the Lord Lieutenant of the County and members of the team will be invited to Buckingham Palace for an Award Winners Reception in June.

Applications for the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise 2020 are now open and close on 10 September 2019. They are free to enter, and it is a self-nominating process. Winners in the International Trade category receive a year's FREE membership to the IOE&IT.
