Benromach Imperial Proof wins top award in the USA
A Benromach single malt whisky has scooped a top award at a prestigious international spirits competition in San Francisco.
Benromach Imperial Proof, launched last year in the USA, was named Best Distillers’ Single Malt Scotch in the category for Scotch whisky up to 12 Years Old. It is sold as Benromach 100° Proof in the UK and other markets.
More than 1,850 entries from around the world were judged by a panel of 39 industry experts including journalists, bartenders, hoteliers and drinks retailers.
And as Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank explained: “Recognition for our classic pre-1960s style Speyside single malt is always welcome and this is a particularly highly regarded competition worldwide. We only recently launched the Imperial Proof in the US market so we’re pleased it has won this accolade.”
Benromach 10 Years Old also collected a Double Gold Medal which is awarded to spirits which are deemed to be outstanding and earned top marks from all the judges on the panel.
Regarded as one of the most respected and influential spirits competitions in the world, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition brings together a panel of carefully selected experts. With an emphasis on integrity and impartiality, all the judging is carried out using blind tastings.
Benromach Imperial Proof is bottled at 57% alc/vol and has the same classic Benromach style that draws its influence from Speyside whiskies of the pre-1960s. It is sold in the UK and other markets as Benromach 100° Proof. But as “proof” is interpreted differently in the USA from the UK, a change of name was needed when it was launched for the US market.
Benromach 10 Years Old is a classic Speyside single malt handcrafted by just three distillers. It is the flagship single malt in a range which includes Benromach 15 Years Old, Benromach Peat Smoke and Benromach Organic.
Originally built in 1898, Benromach Distillery was revived when leading whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail purchased it in 1993. The distillery was extensively re-equipped over a five-year period to create a Speyside single malt whisky in a classic pre-1960s style.
