Grantís Family Reserve named ĎBest Scotch Blendí at World Whiskies Awards 2013

Grantís, Scotlandís oldest family-run, blended whisky maker, received the highest acclaim at this yearís World Whiskies Awards, by being named ĎBest Scotch Blendí for its Grantís Family Reserve.

First held in 2007, the World Whiskies Awards are Whisky Magazine's product awards, searching for the very best whiskies in the world. This year's competition saw more than 300 whiskies put through their paces during three rounds of rigorous tastings to win the coveted titles of the 'World's Best'.

Kate Athanasi, Grantís Global Brand Director said: "Weíre thrilled that Grantís Family Reserve got recognized as the ĎBest Scotch Blendí in the industry. Itís a true testament to all the craftspeople who have worked hard to ensure that our founder William Grantís legacy of blended whiskies continues to be enjoyed all around the world."

Few brands can boast as rich and varied a story as Grantís blended Scotch whisky with record sales and a history spanning over 100 years. An independent distiller run by five successive generations, the company continues to stay true to the high standards of quality and craftsmanship set by its founder, William Grant, who created Grantís Blended Scotch Whisky.

Grantís Family Reserve is one of the worldís best loved Scotch whiskies and enjoyed in over 180 countries. First created by William Grant in 1898, the blend is today, five generations later, entrusted to Grantís Master Blender, Brian Kinsman. Grantís Family Reserve is made with around 25 of the finest single malt and grain Scotch whiskies. The basis for the blend is our widely acclaimed Girvan grain whisky. Vacuum distilled at a lower temperature to make it a lighter and more delicate spirit, it is then aged in oak to give it a deeper, sweeter, soft fruit flavour, creating the perfect foundation.
