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.
