GRANT’S SNATCH TOP HONOURS AT GLOBAL SCOTCH WHISKY MASTERS 2015

6 in the morning is, I suppose, as good a time as any to catch up on whisky posts. Later this evening, the Whisky Live festival starts in Cape Town, at its new home – The Lookout, Granger Bay, V & A Waterfront. As I write this, it’s dark outside, quite chilly inside and I’m thinking about that great Scottish addition to breakfast oats – whisky!

And to start off the day, let’s have a large and loud slàinte mhath to Grant’s whisky, which won several awards in London.  Have a look at this press release from ButterKnife PR.

See you later at the show.

“GRANT’S SNATCH TOP HONOURS AT GLOBAL SCOTCH WHISKY MASTERS 2015

Grant’s, the famous blended Scotch whisky, dominated in this year’s Global Scotch Whisky Masters, held at London’s Spice Market, with every variant winning a medal in their respected categories. The family owned William Grant & Son’s distillery received top honours in various categories which include the Blended Whiskies, where Grant’s Signature took Gold and Grant’s Family Reserve, Grant’s Ale Cask and Grant’s Sherry received Silver. In addition, it has received a gold medal for its Grant’s 25 Year Old, a unique blend, containing twenty-five of the world’s most highly-prized distinctive malt and grain whiskies as well as the Grant’s 18 Year Old in the category of whiskies aged up to 18 years.

In the No Age Statement category, Grant’s continued to excel with the unique stand out blend the Select Reserve which was awarded with the Gold Medal.

Also awarded silver medals were Grant’s 8 Year Old and the Grant’s 12 Year Old, a blend of only the finest single malt and grain whiskies, each matured in oak casks for a minimum of 12 years.

The latest win reaffirms Grant’s worldwide credentials as one of the whisky industry’s most revered blended Scotch whiskies and adds a new chapter to the Grant’s story. The win also celebrates the family’s innovative spirit as its story continues to evolve, and started when the distillery produced its first golden drop of spirit in 1887. Today, Grant’s is the oldest family owned blend in Scotland, built on five generations of heritage, expertise and passion for whisky-making.

The Scotch Whisky Masters, launched in 2008, has become one of the most respected and high profile blind tasting spirits competitions in the world. It is the only competition that uses entirely independent judges and as such, attracts vast numbers of entries every year.”
