Distillery raises a glass to competition success
Glenglassaugh Distillery won an outstanding gold medal for its 30-year-old malt at this year's International Wine and Spirits Competition.
The distillery, owned by BenRiach Distillery Company, also received a gold for its 40-year-old malt, an outstanding silver medal for its Torfa brand, and silver medals for its Evolution and Revival expressions.
The International Wine and Spirit Competition is one of the most prestigious in the world. It exists to award excellence to wines and spirits worldwide, encouraging consumer and trade recognition for quality products.
Judging for the competition is unique in that it has two stages; first, the products are tasted blind by expert panels, selected from over 300 fully experienced and qualified industry judges. Then, products which receive the top medals are subject to technical analysis before results are released; this crucial stage ensures winners receive complete validation.
