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.
