Founded in 1969, the International Wine

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
"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!"
