World’s Best Single Malt goes to Craigellachie 31 Years Old

Craigellachie 31 Years Old whisky

Craigellachie 31 Years Old has won the prestigious “World’s Best Single Malt” at the World Whiskies Awards (WWA) 2017. The single malt whisky was released by John Dewar & Sons back in September 2014 to much acclaim.

Stephanie MacLeod from John Dewars & Sons described the whisky as being “Beautifully balanced, smooth and rich, a swirl of smoke and sulphur accentuate the sumptuous fruits of kiwi and pineapple. The tang of old, leather bound books and tobacco emerge, with a hint of meatiness of a beef consommé.”

Georgie Bell, Craigellachie Global Malts Ambassador added: “Since launching, Craigellachie has built up a huge reputation in the on-trade and with whisky connoisseurs – it’s sought out and admired – and the accolade is true testimony to this. It shows how far the Craigellachie brand has come in the last three years, and how from a production, maturation and blending perspective we really are second to none”.
