GLASGOW, Scotland, December 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Renowned premium whisky maker The Dalmore has received the much coveted 'Distiller of the Year in China' award at Whisky Magazine's Icons of Whisky China 2019 ceremony last month.
The peer-nominated award recognises the quality and reputation of The Dalmore in China amongst distributors, wholesalers and industry experts, and highlights the distillery as one of the market's leading single malt whisky brands.
Known for curating the most exquisite casks from renowned bodegas and wineries, The Dalmore is home to some of the world's oldest whisky stocks, with new expressions and releases developed which reflect the craftsmanship, artistry and knowledge of the distillery's team.
The awards ceremony took place on Saturday 24 November 2018. Judges considered recent market-specific releases along with the distillery's most exceptional expressions, including the world's only six cask-finished whisky, The Dalmore King Alexander III. These, alongside the consistency of The Dalmore's Principal Collection, including its popular 15 and 18 year old single malts, led judges to award The Dalmore with Distiller of the Year in China 2019.
Rob Allanson, Editor of Whisky Magazine, commented: "The Dalmore's reputation for quality and craftsmanship is world-renowned and our Icons of Whisky China recognise the enthusiasm for the brand and its products in China. The distillery has received glowing feedback in these awards as a result of the team at The Dalmore's dedication to excellence. I am sure we'll be seeing more from The Dalmore in China in the future."
Mr Kenny Wang, Country Manager for The Dalmore distillery, said: "We've been working hard in China to develop and deliver the very best new releases, in what we consider to be one of our most important markets. We're therefore delighted to have received Distiller of the Year at one of the most important accolades, this year's Icons of Whisky China 2019 awards. The profile of single malt whisky has grown immensely in China over the past decade, and we're honoured to be recognised as being an integral part of this growth. Thank you to every one of you who nominated us and helped make this a reality."
Commenting on behalf of Scottish Development International, Serena Sullivan added: "We've worked closely with the team to support the development and innovation of The Dalmore brand, so it's great to hear the company is enjoying such high profile achievements in overseas markets."
