An international collective of thirty-one malt whisky enthusiasts, the Malt Maniacs have been enjoying and discussing the pleasures of single malt whisky with whisky lovers worldwide for the last sixteen years.

This year, ten strictly amateur judges from the Malt Maniacs collective tasted, nosed, sampled and re-sampled all the entries.

Sales Director Alistair Walker said: "2013 has been an exceptional year for the company. As well as taking over Glenglassaugh and launching a number of new expressions, both there and from GlenDronach and BenRiach, we have won numerous awards at the International Wine and Spirits Competition and at the Scottish Field Whisky Challenge.

"The Malt Maniacs awards are important to us because theyre given by passionate and independent-minded whisky enthusiasts who really know their malts. The awards reflect both the extraordinary skill of our people in our three distilleries and the importance we place on our wood management programme.

"Im especially pleased that the BenRiach 10 year old Curiositas is the Best Peated malt in the Daily Drams category. Its an absolutely phenomenal whisky and were delighted it has been recognised as such by Malt Maniacs."
