25 Year Old named The Best Whisky In The
World at the San Francisco World Spirits
Scotia 25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
has been recognised as the ‘Best in
Show’ at this year’s San Francisco World
Spirits Competition (SFWSC), with judges
awarding the Scotch single malt whisky
from Campbeltown, one of Scotland’s
smallest Scotch Whisky regions, as the
overall winner of the competition, and
therefore The Best Whisky in The World
This year the SFWSC judged 3,800
entrants across 31 separate categories,
with Glen Scotia 25 Year Old ultimately
being named as Best in Show Whisky.
The SFWSC is one of the world’s most
prestigious spirits competitions. Its
judges are renowned experts in their
fields with decades of industry
experience. The competition started in
2000, making it the second oldest
spirits competition in the world, and
the oldest and largest spirits
competition in the US.
Iain McAlister, Master Distiller, Glen
Scotia Distillery said: "To receive such
outstanding recognition and be awarded
as ‘Best in Show’ at this prestigious
competition is an honour, and a
tremendous boost to the entire team here
at Glen Scotia distillery.
"The Glen Scotia 25 Year Old (70cl,
48.8% ABV) is a really outstanding
whisky and has collected a number of
prestigious awards over the years, but
this has to be the absolute proudest
moment for the distillery to date."
Glen Scotia 25 Year Old wasn’t the only
whisky from the distillery to receive an
award at this year’s competition with
the Glen Scotia 15-Year-Old a Gold
Medal, and Glen Scotia Harbour Single
Malt picking up a Silver Medal.
Campbeltown, although Scotland’s
smallest whisky producing region today,
was in its heyday during the Victorian
era known as "The Whisky Capital of the
World" and home to more than 30
distilleries. Although now only three
remain, Glen Scotia Distillery, captures
the knowledge, experience, craft and
passion learnt over the centuries of
distilling in Campbeltown to produce an
exceptional range of Scotch whiskies,
all perfect examples of the classic,
maritime Campbeltown style.
