Connoisseurs Choice Wins Gold Medal
Gordon & MacPhail won big at the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition, scooping a gold medal for their Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Tomatin 1997.
The company also picked up a silver medal for Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength Caol Ila 2004.
The competition received entries from 30 different countries across the world and the gold medal was given to Connoisseurs Choice Tomatin 1997 after the judges recognised it as the best of the best.
The gold medal winner was noted to have oak, fresh coconut and rapeseed oil on the nose which gave way to flavours of vanilla, mixed with elements of oak spice, with a smooth, cracked black pepper finish.
Gordon & MacPhail’s Connoisseurs Choice range was launched back in the 1960’s to give consumers the opportunity to taste rare and sought-after single malt whisky from distilleries throughout Scotland.
This range shows the specialist whisky company’s focus on providing high-quality whiskies which can be enjoyed by both experts and those who are new to the world of single malts
Stephen Rankin, Director and a member of the fourth generation of the Urquhart family, the owners of Gordon & MacPhail, said: “An opportunity to enjoy unique whiskies, which otherwise would not be available to purchase, our Connoisseurs Choice range offers consumers the chance to experience something special. Long revered by both consumers and the whisky industry, it is fantastic to see not one but three of the whiskies in the range being recognised by leading spirits authorities.
“These recent accolades, alongside the various awards won throughout the past year, are testament to our dedication to providing whisky lovers across the world with top quality products which are lovingly nurtured by experts in their field.”
