Tomatin Distillery’s four travel retail exclusive expressions took home three Double Gold wins at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition

Tomatin Distillery, which has been blending malt Scotch whisky since 1897, has celebrated its most successful year at the prestigious 2019 San Francisco World Spirit Competition.

Tomatin’s four travel retail exclusive expressions took home three Double Gold wins and one Gold award.

The range, which launched in 2016, comprises an exclusive Tomatin 40 Year Old Single Malt in 70cl, Tomatin 15 Year Old Single Malt in 70cl, Tomatin 12 Year Old Single Malt from the core range in one-liter volume, and an exclusive Tomatin 8 Year Old Single Malt also in one liter.

Tomatin received 11 medals of Gold or higher in the competition. The Travel Retail 8 Year Old won its first Gold following two silver awards. Tomatin 12 Year Old was awarded Double Gold, its 6th consecutive Gold award. The Travel Retail 15 Year Old won its third consecutive Gold.

Winning Double Gold for the second year running, the Travel Retail 40 Year Old malt is matured in Oloroso sherry casks, resulting in a big and fruity finish with just a touch of oak.

Graham Nicolson, Sales Director of Tomatin, said: “This has been an amazing year for Tomatin, especially with regards to our travel retail range. The fact that we’ve received a gold or double gold award for every whisky we entered is a fantastic achievement. I’m proud to say the Tomatin range excels at all levels.”

Graham Eunson, Distillery Manager at Tomatin, said: “Over 3,000 spirits were judged at this year’s awards, and to triumph across the board is a big accomplishment for the Distillery team. Our wood policy is second to none; we produce a high-quality spirit which develops into exceptional whisky through maturation in the right casks, these awards prove that we’re amongst the best in the world.”

Tomatin recently announced that it is officially the fastest-growing top 10 single malt whisky in the US.
