Our Cask No. G4.9: A blast from the past was the only winner in the Scotch Whisky Single Grain – Ultra Premium category, picking up a silver medal. The judging panel described the 36-year-old grain whisky from our Spicy & Sweet flavour profile as “tropical” and “pleasant”, and judge Antony Moss added: “It’s a leaner, tighter style – like a rock; it’s very focused.”

The Single Malt – Super Premium Master award went to our Cask No. 3.295 Bouquets and spades, a 20-year-old Lightly Peated bottling from Islay described by judge Greg Dillon as an “unforgettable whisky – one that really stands out”.

Cask No. 72.50: A Nomad’s Tent secured Gold in the Single Malt – Ultra Premium flight category. Greg Dillon said of the 31-year-old Old & Dignified bottling: “I don’t think I was expecting this level of quality. It’s difficult to predict because it’s a limitless price point.”

The Luxury Masters awards come on the back of a number of other successes for Society bottlings in international competitions this year, with prizes in the IWSC, International Spirits Challenge, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, and the Scotch Whisky Masters.
