The awards which were held on Thursday night at the Waldorf Hotel in London, are one of leading award programmes in the whisky industry. An esteemed panel of internationally recognised whisky experts deemed the Craigellachie bottling, to be the best single malt whisky in the world, beating off competition from hundreds of entries from across the world.

Craigellachie 31 Year Old, which launched in 2016, followed on from the four official distillery bottlings (13, 17, 19 and 23 Year Old) which were launched by the Speyside based distillery in 2014.
Commenting on the news, Georgie Bell, Global Malts Ambassador for John Dewar & Sons, said: “Since launching, Craigellachie has built up a huge reputation in the on-trade and with whisky connoisseurs – its 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.”
This latest award follows on from the success of Craigellachie 23 Year Old being crowned as ‘Best in Show’ at the San Francisco World’s Spirits Competition in 2015.
