Welcome to the Whisk(e)y Warrior Award!


If you're here, then you're probably already a fan of the Whisk(e)y Warrior Award and the good it's encouraging in the whiskey community. Thanks for your support!

We have a vision for the future of this award that includes things like having winners from around the world, upgrading the prizes, and getting to advertise the interviews! All of this to keep growing toward a more magnificent whiskey culture.

So, if you'd like to join us in this whiskey adventure and help build a more inclusive, friendly, and fun community, then welcome aboard! Join one of our Patreon tiers and let's make a positive difference for whiskey together. One Whisk(e)y Warrior Award at a time.

Now, if you're here and you've never heard of the Whisk(e)y Warrior Award, you might be wondering what the heck it is. Here's our story:

My wife and I noticed a need in the whiskey community.

What was it?

There was no award for the grassroots supporters of the whiskey community.

We saw lots of awards (rightly created) for Distillers, Blenders, Bar Tenders, Brand Reps, and other whiskey industry people. But there was no award for the enthusiast, only for the professional. Only for people who were already getting paid to drink whiskey.

So we decided to create a monthly award in the hopes of accomplishing two things:

First, we would shine the spotlight on the whiskey community underdogs. The award would be for those who spend their own time and money helping others learn about our golden spirit. An award for those who would contribute to a better and more welcoming whiskey culture. An award for the bloggers, podcasters, reviewers, organizers, and good-hearted neighbors next door. An award for the whiskey weekend-warrior.

Second, by highlighting local whiskey enthusiasts who were already generous, kind, inclusive, and fun, then perhaps we could encourage others in the community to imitate them. Perhaps we could move our whiskey culture forward from the bottom up, instead of from the top down.

And so we created the Whisk(e)y Warrior Award and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

Well, we're now two years, twenty-five winners, and thousands of followers into it and we're at a turning point. If this award is going to continue to grow, if it's going to continue to encourage a more wonderful whiskey culture, then we need your help.

Would you like to be a part of a nicer, more inclusive, friendly whiskey world?

You can help make that happen.

If you've got the time but not the money, then do what you can to help your local whiskey drinkers. Every little bit brings us closer.

You get everything from the previous level plus:

I really don’t know. Your Warlordy powers are too great. I’m not prepared for this level of generosity. Maybe, name my first child after you? Co-sign a loan for you? Give you a small country for you to exercise your dominion over?... Not sure. At the VERY least you’re getting a personal thank you and an epic t-shirt. 

Goals
$24 of $200 per month
When we reach $200 per month, we’ll be able to have WWA winners outside of the United States. Shipping prizes internationally is no joke. But at this level, we’ll be able to make the worldwide whiskey community feel like a neighborhood block party. Barbeque anyone?
