It’s great that this fourth bottling of our lightly-peated malt with the fruity overtones is still impressing whisky judges across the world, showcasing a taste of what’s to come with our first bottling of island whisky in 2020.
Our specialist heritage brand The Tweeddale scooped two silver awards for our single grain oloroso sherry finish Tweeddale Grain of Truth whisky, and our premium blend 28 year old The Tweeddale: The Evolution.
It’s particularly satisfying for R&B Distillers Co-founder Alasdair Day, great-grandson of master blender Richard Day, since it comes ten years after he recreated his great-grandfather’s recipe for The Tweeddale in 2009. Alasdair Day has now received recognition from the World Whiskies Awards for both the oldest and the youngest Tweeddale whiskies. Alasdair commented: “We’re delighted to receive this recognition from the prestigious World Whiskies Awards. As we move towards the release of the first ever Isle of Raasay Single Malt in 2020, these awards highlight the hard work and dedication of the team at R&B Distillers.”
The forty strong international judging panel awards based their decisions on taste and design. This year’s winners were selected at a final tasting and announced at the Whisky Magazine dinner in London on 28th March 2019.
