Glengoyne Toast Award Winning Year | Two further awards have turned 2014 into a record-breaking year for Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky | 15th November, 2014

Glengoyne Toast Award Winning Year | Two further awards have turned 2014 into a record-breaking year for Glengoyne

The family owned distillery has won more top awards this year than ever before with the latest, a double win at the Scottish Field Whisky Challenge, to add to the trophy cabinet.

Glengoyne 25 Year Old was awarded the Top Distillery Bottling and a silver medal in the Over £80 category.

The Scottish Field Whisky Challenge is now in its fourteenth year and is a key event in the Scotch whisky trade calendar. The winners are chosen through blind tasting by respected industry judges meaning the whisky is chosen solely on its own merit.

Neil Boyd, Commercial Director of Malts for Ian Macleod Distillers

Commenting on the awards, Neil Boyd, Commercial Director of Malts for Ian Macleod Distillers who own Glengoyne said: “2014 has truly been an award-winning year for us at Glengoyne and with another set of awards to add to our already record number for this year, this really is a fantastic accolade for us. We are looking forward to next year and the successes we hope it will bring.”

 Glengoyne is owned by one of Scotland’s leading, independent, family-owned distillers, Ian Macleod Distillers. Glengoyne is handcrafted from the finest sherry casks within Glengoyne’s traditional dunnage warehouses. Unlike most other single malt whiskies, Glengoyne dries its malted barley using only warm air resulting in a subtle yet complex malt where all the delicate flavours are freely expressed.

Glengoyne Distillery - highly regarded as Scotland’s most beautiful distillery is situated in Dumgoyne near Loch Lomond. Glengoyne runs its stills slower than any other distillery, proof that Glengoyne genuinely is “Worth the Wait”.
