Whisky News Tomatin Wins Top Prize at Edinburgh Whisky Fringe - 10th August, 2012
Tomatin Distillery is celebrating having been awarded this year’s ‘The Spirit of Whisky Fringe Award’ at the Whisky Fringe held in Edinburgh 3‐5 August 2012. The Tomatin 30 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky was voted the outright winner by visitors to the event, and the Tomatin 1982 single cask also appeared in the top 10 coming in 5th place.
The Whisky Fringe is an annual event held in the stunning venue of The Mansfield Traquair in Edinburgh, organised by whisky retailer Royal Mile Whiskies. Now in its 11th year, the sell‐out 3 day event presents over 200 whiskies to 500 visitors who vote for their favourite whisky they have sampled.
Tomatin Distillery also had two expressions in the top ten last year, including their limited edition ‘Decades’ release
marking Douglas Campbell’s 50 years’ service to the company which came in 5th place. The previous bottling of
Tomatin 30 year old came in 9th place, but this year's new bottling clearly took the show by storm.
Stephen Bremner, Sales Director, commented: “It is a great achievement and testament to the quality of our spirit that we have had two of our whiskies in the top ten for the past two years at this popular event, and we are absolutely delighted that our new edition 30 year old won the top prize. What makes this award so special is that it is voted for not by industry experts but by customers themselves, so we are thrilled our whiskies rate so highly.”
Both the Tomatin 30 Year Old and 1982 Single Cask are available to buy from www.royalmilewhiskies.com.
