Benromach 10 Year Old has been crowned the winner in the 12 Years & Under category at the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Awards 2019Benromach 10 Year Old has been crowned the winner in the 12 Years & Under category at the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Awards 2019. The annual competition seeks out the best whiskies from Scotlandís most prolific whisky-producing region.

Just two finalists are selected in each category during a blind taste challenge held by the judging panel, which is composed of nine leading industry experts and whisky writers. Benromach was the only distillery to have two expressions in the final eight whiskies, including Benromach 15 Years Old which was recognised as the runner up in the 13 Ė 20 Years Old category.

In the only whisky competition of its type, the shortlisted expressions are then sampled by the public at judging sessions held in cities including New York, Cologne, Rome, Belfast and London.

Visitors and locals to the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival in May then cast the deciding vote on the shortlist, with the results revealed at the Festivalís closing ceilidh.

Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: "We are immensely proud that Benromach 10 Years Old, our flagship whisky, has been recognised in these prestigious awards. It is particularly special because such a breadth of audiences from all over the world have had the opportunity to try two of our whiskies and have recognised them for their quality and taste.

"At Benromach, we are one of only a few Scottish distilleries to craft all our whiskies by hand. Our methods take a little longer, but we believe this extra attention is reflected in the depth of the flavours of our whiskies. We manage the process by sight, sound and touch and use only traditional techniques to create our distinctive expressions Ė beautifully balanced with a light touch of smoke."

If you fancy trying the Benromach 10 Year Old yourself or indeed any of the Benromach whisky range you will find the current range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
