Gordon & MacPhail wins double gold at San Francisco World Spirits Competition

Leading malt whisky specialist Gordon & MacPhail is toasting success after receiving one of the top accolades in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC)

Gordon & MacPhail’s Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1954 40% single malt received a double gold award, the highest medal available, after 43 spirit experts convened in the city last month to judge a record-breaking 2,100 entries.

A beautifully full bodied, after dinner dram, matured in a first fill sherry cask, Gordon & MacPhail’s Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1954 is bursting with fruity aromas and flavours. Deliciously smooth with hints of red apples and aromas of aniseed, its mild spices give way to flavours of fresh grapefruit and lemon.

David King, International Sales Director said: “This is a great news for Gordon & MacPhail, particularly as this latest award follows a gold medal win for Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1954 earlier this month in the International Spirits Challenge.”

“Receiving these awards from some of the industry’s most influential experts demonstrates our expertise in the selection of the finest casks for whisky maturation and is testament to the hard work and dedication of every individual who works at Gordon & MacPhail.

“Since 1895, we have been carefully matching each cask to the new-make spirit before nurturing and maturing our whiskies into unique single malts. It is a craft that we have passed down through the generations. We are committed to seeking out and lovingly maturing unique spirits into an exciting portfolio of expressions to be enjoyed by whisky drinkers worldwide.”

Launched in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competitions has become one of the most influential competitions in the spirits calendar due to the integrity and impartiality of the judging process. Scored by leading figures from across the industry, each sample is blind tested without producer or price point information being revealed.
