Since its inception in 2004, the Whisky Magazine Hall of Fame has built up an impressive archive of over 40 whisky greats.

From the first inductee, Michael Jackson, through to the most recent, making the list truly sets these individuals among the most iconic in the industry. Drawn from distillers, blenders, company owners and writers, the Hall of Fame is the highest accolade the magazine can bestow and is our permanent tribute honouring individuals who have made a lasting contribution to the whisky world. This year is no exception as we welcome legendary individuals who have helped shape American, Canadian and Irish whisky during their long and illustrious careers. We hope you will join us in celebrating the success of these inspirational characters.
