The Spirit Masters series has fast become one of the most respected and high profile trade competitions in the industry, attracting a record number of entries from leading brands all over the world across a variety of spirits categories from vodka and gin to rum and Tequila.
Commenting on the awards, Andy Lane, Travel Retail Director from Ian Macleod Distillers who own the Glengoyne brand said: “It has been a truly exceptional year for us at Glengoyne with a record number of award wins. To be presented with another three from The Spirits Business Travel Retail Masters is an honour and we are absolutely thrilled.”
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 warehouses. Unlike most other single malt whiskies, Glengoyne dries its malted barley using only warm air resulting in an extremely 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”.
