Craigellachie is awarded World’s Best Single Malt


Craigellachie has been awarded the World’s Best Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards 2017.

The Whisky Magazine competition saw internationally recognised whisky experts honour Craigellachie 31-year-old as the best single malt whisky in the world.

Georgie Bell, Global Malts ambassador said: “Since launching, Craigellachie has built up a huge reputation in the on-trade and with whisky connoisseurs – its sought out and admired – and the accolade is true testimony to this.

“It shows how far the Craigellachie brand has come in the last three years, and how from a production, maturation and blending perspective we really are second to none.”

Stephanie MacLeod, malts master and master blender for John Dewars and Sons describes Craigellachie 31-year-old as: “Beautifully balanced, smooth and rich, a swirl of smoke and sulphur accentuate the sumptuous fruits of kiwi and pineapple. The tang of old, leather bound books and tobacco emerge, with a hint of meatiness of a beef consommé.”

This award follows the success of Craigellachie 23-year-old, which was crowned Best in Show at the San Francisco World’s Spirits Competition in 2015.
