Tullibardine has triumphed at this year’s International Wine & Spirit Competition, bringing home a total of three awards including two Silver Outstanding awards for the Tullibardine 20 Year Old and 25 Year Old and a Bronze for the Tullibardine Sovereign.
After taking part in a rigorous two-step process which involved a double-blind tasting and chemical analysis, it was announced that Tullibardine had secured three medals for its expressions. The IWSC takes place every year in London and evaluates entries on taste and quality.
This is the second year running that Tullibardine has celebrated success at the event receiving a Silver Medal of Excellence for the hugely popular whisky, The Murray 2004, in 2017.
The IWSC Judging panel complimented the 20 YO agreeing that it boasted a complex, fruity quality with a soft and sweet palate. Additionally, the 25 YO was credited with comments including ‘a very well-balanced palate.’
John Torrance, Distillery Manager at Tullibardine Distillery said: “It is an incredible achievement to be recognised on a global scale amongst such prestigious competition. The IWSC is among the most important awards in the industry and our success demonstrates the craft that goes into whisky creation at Tullibardine.
“We’re so proud of each of the awards we’ve received and it’s a testament to the dedication and passion that goes into producing every single dram here in Perthshire. From the clear, pure water of the Ochil Hills, our surrounding micro climate and the Highland air, it’s the perfect place to create exceptional whisky.”
Now in its 49th year, The International Wine & Spirit Competition prides itself in setting the international benchmark for quality in wine and spirits awards, featuring technical spirit analysis in addition to blind tasting. The competition receives entries from nearly 90 countries each year, which are judged over a 7 month period by 400 experts.
