Speyside Hat-trick for Glenfiddich

9th of May, 2016 | Posted in Brand News | Email Article | Print Article

Glenfiddich Distillery has become the first single distillery to scoop all three accolades at the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival Whisky Awards.
The Dufftown distillery swept the board after its malts were selected by the whisky-loving public in a series of blind taste tests.
Glenfiddich 12 year old triumphed over Glen Grant’s 10 year old in the 12 year or younger category, and also took the title for the 13 to 20 year old category with its 18 year old, winning over Glen Moray’s 16 year old.
The distillery’s Glenfiddich 21 year old won the category for single malts aged over 21, beating the Cragganmore 25 year old 2014 Special Release.
Judging sessions were held across Speyside during the Festival, which closed on 2 May, with a one-off judging held for the first time abroad, in the specialist Scottish shop Scotia Spirit in Cologne.
