Hat trick of golds for Benromach 10 Years Old
Benromach Distillery’s flagship 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has won two more gold medals, making it three in as many months.
The classic Speyside whisky, hand-crafted by just three distillers, secured “Big Gold” and the accolade of Spirit of the Year at the 2015 International Spirits Awards in Germany.
It was also selected for a gold medal in the Scotch Whisky Masters competition run by the Spirits Business Magazine.
These latest awards follow a gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition back in March.
Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank said: “We’re obviously pleased that Benromach is winning recognition around the world as a top-quality product.
“It’s testament to the hands-on approach we have here, where everything is manual and dependent on our senses – sight, smell, sound and touch.
“We like to say there are four ingredients – the finest barley grown and malted to our specifications, water from the Chapelton Spring in the Romach Hills, yeast (we’re one of the last distilleries in Scotland to use a mixture of brewer’s and distiller’s) and us, the distillers who make it happen!”
Meanwhile, Benromach 100° Proof has been chosen by Scottish Field magazine as its number one whisky in the £40-£80 price range for its annual whisky challenge.
