THE GLENDRONACH DISTILLERY WINS 5 MEDALS IN THE 2016 INTERNATIONAL WINE AND SPIRITS COMPETITION

29th Jul 2016

THE GlenDronach Distillery has won 5 medals, including 2 Gold medals, across a total 16 medals in its three brands 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.

 The GlenDronach took two Gold, one Silver Outstanding, one Silver and one Bronze medal.

The GlenDronach Original Aged 12 Years took Gold for a second year. This is testament to the quality of the whisky, which has matured in the finest Spanish Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks.

The GlenDronach Hielan’ Aged 8 Years has moved up from last year’s Silver to take Gold this year. For such a young whisky, it has consistently won critical acclaim worldwide.
