Glenglassaugh has won 4 medals, including 1 Gold medal, at this year’s International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Founded in 1969, the International Wine and Spirit Competition is one of the most prestigious in the world. It was set up to highlight excellence amongst the world’s best wines, spirits and liqueurs. Now in its forty-seventh year, it receives entries from over 90 countries, giving it global reach and reputation.
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.
Glenglassaugh took one Gold, two Silver Outstanding and one Silver medal.
For three years running, Glenglassaugh 30 Years Old has taken Gold.
It was the first whisky to be released after the distillery was re-opened in 2013 and it has matured in coastal warehouses for over 30 years. This is reflected in the coastal character of the whisky and the elegant sherry-cask background.
