Springbank Distillers scoops Industry Award

Postby SBpete » Tue Sep 22, 2009 4:31 pm

Springbank Distillers Ltd have been voted Scottish Whisky Distiller of the Year 2010, at the recent Whisky Magazine Icons of Whisky dinner, by a panel of industry experts and journalists. This is the first time we have won the award, and is testament to the quality of the whiskies we have released this year, including the new Kilkerran Single Malt, from the Glengyle Distillery . Stuart Robertson, Distillery Manager, can be seen below collecting the award from WHisky Mag editor Rob Allanson.

On a personal note, I also scooped the award for Young Whisky Ambassador of the Year, although my job would be a great deal more difficult if the whiskies I had to represent were not so fantastic :wink:

Congratulations to all concerned. I will admit to being slightly chuffed when, on a recent trip to Las Vegas, saw that Springbank was the most expensive tipple in the place....
OOH did they knock down McCaigs folly.....

Well done Springbank and of course you young Peter! :mrgreen: Brilliant news. Does it mean any Whisky I have is worth more? 8)

Pete - perhaps you could take time out to help RedHaired Yank on this topic - viewtopic.php?f=22&t=8750 - I definitely have a couple of things wrong!

All the best and thanks for sharing your news with us. The excellent http://www.forargyll.com have picked up on it from here too - see http://forargyll.com/2009/09/campbeltow ... -the-year/ :mrgreen: :D
