Distell Scotch whisky portfolio continues to impress, this time the leading spirits producer has scooped 11 awards at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). This follows triumph at the Icons of Whisky Awards, the World Whiskies Awards and the Ňran Mór Whisky Awards, receiving widespread recognition across its malt whisky portfolio.

Overall, eleven of Distell’s malts were recognised at the annual SFWSC event including four Double Gold, four Gold and three Silver accolades.

Located in the most northerly point of Islay, Bunnahabhain won five awards including a Double Gold for its Stiůireadair for the second year in a row. The Stiůireadair single malt is the latest addition to the range and pays homage to the distillery’s shoreline showcasing the coastal nature of the liquid.

Double Gold honours were also awarded to Ledaig 10 Year Old, as well as Deanston 12 Year Old and 18 Year Old.

These latest wins follow a successful period for the business as it was crowned ‘Overall Distiller of the Year’ at the Icons of Whisky Awards on 28 March. Distell also won 13 awards at the World Whiskies Awards and three awards at the Ňran Mór Whisky Awards on the same night.

Derek Scott, Brand Director for Malts at Distell International, said:

"We are passionate about our malts portfolio and are continually working to provide exceptional whisky for new and loyal audiences alike.

"SFWSC is one of the most respected and influential spirits competitions in the world, it is judged by the industry’s top experts, so winning is high praise indeed. We are immensely proud to have so many of our malts recognised on this global stage."

Almost 3,000 entries were received, the largest amount in the history of the competition, and the whiskies were blind-tasted by experts from across the globe. The full results were announced in San Francisco on 15 April 2019.
