BenRiaich & GlenDronach Win 10 Medals At IWSC 2013

24th July 2013
BenRiach and GlenDronach wins ten medals between them including two Golds in the 2013 International Wine and Spirits Competition

The BenRiach Distillery Company has has walked away from the International Wine and Spirits Competition 2013 with a haul 10 well deserved medals between them, with their BenRiach, GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh expressions all scooping major awards.

The excellent BenRiach 16 year old and the outstanding BenRiach Authenticus 25 year old both picked up Gold Medals.

In addition to the two Gold Medals, there were three Silver Outstanding Medals – for BenRiach 12 year old Arumaticus Fumosus, GlenDronach 12 year old and the excellent BenRiach 17 year old Solstice.

Four silver medals followed for the GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 2, GlenDronach 21 year old  Parliament, GlenDronach 18 year old Allardice and the Glenglassaugh Evolution.

And completing the ten awards was a Bronze Medal for Glenglassaugh Revival.

Founded in 1969, the International Wine and Spirit Competition is one of the most prestigious in the world. It exists to award excellence to wines and spirits worldwide, encouraging consumer and trade recognition for quality products.

BenRiach’s Sales Director Alistair Walker said: "We are thrilled to win these awards, especially as they are spread across all three of our brands, and winning two gold medals is particularly satisfying.

"The 16 year-old is a really nice, smooth single malt – of all the whiskies we produce this specific expression probably best captures the ‘house-style’ of BenRiach – a real classic Speysider!

"And our full-bodied 25YO Authenticus, formerly available as a 21YO, continues to get rave reviews. Bottled at 46%, non chill filtered and at natural colour, the peated malted barley produces a unique, smoky, phenolic taste that’s very unusual for a Speyside malt.

"These are two sublime malts...perfect for toasting the health of a new baby Prince and his proud parents!"
