Sukhinder Singh of The Whisky Exchange said of the Award: “It is a real honour and true testament to the dedication and skill of the whole team to be awarded this prestigious title for the third year in a row. It is fantastic that great brands like Glengoyne are supporting independent retailers as they are a much loved by whisky enthusiasts.”
Neil Boyd of Glengoyne said: “Independents and specialists have a vital role to play in today’s marketplace which is why we chose to sponsor this important category. We were very impressed with the quality of the entrants and would like to congratulate The Whisky Exchange on a great hat-trick of awards.”
Glengoyne is one of the leading premium malt whiskies in the world and has been distilled at Glengoyne distillery since 1833. The Glengoyne is available in 10 Years Old, 12 Years Old, 12 Years Old Cask Strength, 17 Years Old , 21 Years Old and Vintage 1972 as well as other limited edition special bottlings.
But what’s different about Glengoyne Highland Single Malt is that it is distilled slower than any other Scotch whisky. Its high quality and smooth taste is attributed to this slow distillation, which is about one third the normal rate.
