Sales Director Alistair Walker said: “2015 has been a stellar year for the company. As well as winning these coveted “Malt Maniacs” medals, we took a further ten medals across our three brands at the IWSC awards, we announced record profits and a major £25m investment and we became the “Global Whisky Distiller of the Year” at the “Icons of Whisky” awards, so the year is ending on a real high for the company.

“The Malt Maniacs awards are very important to us because they are given by dedicated whisky lovers who are passionate about whisky.

“I am especially pleased that our single cask releases received the highest marks this year as these casks represent the most exclusive whiskies from our warehouses and we are delighted they have been recognised as such by the Malt Maniacs judges.”
