The Macallan Fine Oak 21 year old single malt scooped the top prize, the esteemed Ultimate Spirits Chairman´s Trophy, at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

Following four stages of competitive judging over the course of three days, Ultimate Chairman´s Trophy winners were arrived at based on their aggregate score on the 100-point scale. The Macallan Fine Oak 21 year old scored 97 points the highest marks in its category.

In addition, Highland Park 18 year old single malt, The Macallan 1824 Collection Select Oak and The Macallan 1824 Collection Estate Reserve, had the distinction of all reaching the semi-final and were awarded ‘extraordinary and ultimate recommendation´ in their categories.

Ken Grier, director of malts, commented: "This fantastic award reinforces The Macallan´s position as a producer of world class premium single malt Scotch whisky. It is an outstanding accolade for the brand and testament to the quality and craftsmanship that goes into making our single malt.

"This award is particularly important as the competition is based on integrity, method and credibility, all of which is embodied in The Macallan single malt."

More than 520 entries were received from companies worldwide, but only a dozen were awarded the USC Chairman´s Trophy as the highest scoring spirits of their category.
