Distell's Scotch whisky portfolio scoops 10 awards at the World Whiskies Awards 2019.

International spirits, wine and cider producer, Distell's Scotch whisky line-up has impressed the judges in the first round, at the 2019 World Whiskies Awards with its range of single malts and blended Scotch whiskies scooping 10 accolades in total between them including three category winners, three gold medals, two silver and two bronze.

Islay’s most remote distillery, Bunnahabhain won two overall category awards for Best Scotch Islay Single Malt (13-20 years) with its Bunnahabhain 18 Year Old, as well as the 21 year and over category with its 25 Year Old expression – a second year winning this award for each. The distillery also scooped a gold medal for its peated expression, Bunnahabhain Toiteach a Dha.

Further achievements across the single malts included a category award win for Ledaig 10 Year Old in the Scotch Islands (Non Islay) 12 years and under, while Deanston was recognised with a gold medal for its 12 Year Old expression in the Scotch Highland 12 years and under category.

Amongst Distell’s Scotch brands, Scottish Leader was acknowledged in three categories with a gold medal for its 12 Year Old in the blended (12 years and under) section. And Black Bottle received a silver medal for its no-age statement blended Scotch whisky.

Derek Scott, Brand Director for Malt Whisky at Distell commented on the company's success across its Scotch whisky portfolio; "The results speak for themselves and reinforce the passion and commitment from across the distilleries and blending teams to deliver world class products. Not only does this showcase the talent of the team, it demonstrates the innovation and continued commitment to develop international award winning products for consumers to enjoy."

The World Whiskies Awards are always well received by whisky drinkers, this year there was over 1000 brands entered and as always the whiskies were 'blind-tasted' by a panel of 40 experts from across the globe and it is this blind tasting which raises the WWA's above the numerous other awards that are around nowadays. The 2nd round of the World Whiskies Awards kicked off in London this week, results pending.

If you fancy trying any of Distell's award winning line-up of whiskies you will find the current range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
