Independent family-owned distiller, William Grant & Sons, has been recognised as Distiller of the Year at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2022 – the industry awards that are known for setting the international benchmark for quality and recognising excellence in spirits worldwide.
Grants 18-year-old also received the ISC Tasting Trophy, and Glenfiddich’s limited edition Chinese New Year gift pack received recognition for its design & packaging.
This run of success builds on previous years when William Grant & Sons was awarded Distiller of the Year (2016-2021) and Scotch Whisky Producer of the Year (2015-2019).
Brian Kinsman, Master Blender said, “I am so proud that yet again, so many of our incredible brands have been recognised by the ISC with these globally-renowned awards.
“These acknowledgements are all down to our teams’ continued dedication and drive to ensure our drams remain the best in the valley, and we look forward to continuing this success over the years to come.”
These trophies are in addition to three coveted ISC ‘Double Gold’ awards for Grant’s 18YO, Batch & Bottle Hendrick’s Gin Martini and Batch & Bottle Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned. In total William Grant & Sons received 81 medals and three trophies recognising quality across its entire brand portfolio, including 40 Gold and Double Gold.
