The flagship single malt for the Benromach Distillery Co Ltd has impressed yet another international judging panel: the Benromach 10 Years Old scooped the Grand Gold Medal at the Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
1140 spirits from 54 countries competed in the competition, which took place last month, and were judged by some of the world’s finest spirit tasters including 66 tasters, representing 22 different nationalities. Out of the 20 brands awarded the Grand Gold Medal award, Benromach was the only Scottish brand. The Spirits Selection is well-known for the wide variety of competing spirits and the calibre of international judges, making it a truly global spirits championship.
Benromach Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank said: “Our Benromach 10 Years Old is a very special single malt for us at Benromach and is our most popular expression. At Benromach we have retained traditional methods and we work the time-honoured way, creating our whiskies by hand, using sight, sound, smell and touch, just as they would have done many years ago.
“2017 has been an incredible year with numerous award wins for several of our whiskies and to have them recognised and awarded at such a high, international level is a great reward for our small team of highly skilled distillers at our Forres distillery.”
