A SCOTCH whisky picked up seven gold medals for its single malts from a prestigious international competition.
Glenmorangie won the seven Gold Outstanding awards at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) that brings the best products in the spirit industry.
The Quinta Ruban, one of Glenmorangie’s Extra Matured Range whiskies celebrated a Gold Outstanding award.
Earlier this year, Glenmorangie’s Whisky Creation Team refined the recipe for Quinta Ruban from 12 years old to 14 years old, resulting in a richer, smoother dram.
Finished in ruby port casks, the new 14-year-old Quinta Ruban recipe brings out more delicious aromas and tastes of Seville orange and dark chocolate.
Other expressions from the core range of Glenmorangie whiskies were also celebrated at the awards.
Gold Outstanding was awarded to the sherry cask finish Glenmorangie Lasanta and Glenmorangie 18 Years Old, while gold was awarded to one of Glenmorangie’s richest, most unique whiskies made from high-roasted chocolate malt barley – Signet.
The Distillery’s exciting new innovations were also acclaimed. Gold medals were awarded to Glenmorangie Allta, the first whisky created from wild yeast which marks the tenth anniversary of the pioneering Private Edition series.
Alongside a Travel Retail exclusive release from Bond House No. 1 collection, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1993.
Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Director of Distilling, said: “We are delighted that the new Quinta Ruban has been given independent verification from the prestigious IWSC.
“This bold, velvety single malt is simply a delicious dram. We are looking forward to consumers having the chance to taste this new and improved whisky.
“It is fantastic to receive such positive feedback about our carefully created whisky range from a globally respected competition.”
