Spirit of Speyside Whisky Awards Winners
Sponsored by Forsyths Coppersmiths
The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Awards is a unique competition as it's considered to be the only whisky award to be judged by whisky experts, the industry, festival-goers and visitors to Speyside.
At the preliminary stage, two whiskies from each category are selected in a blind tasting for the final by a panel of judges drawn from the industry, whisky writers and specialist retail outlets. This year over 50 entries were received.
Following a lunch at the wonderful Knockando distillery, whisky writer Martine Nouet discussed each of the finalists the winners were announced.
The 2013 Winners of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Awards were:
12 y/o and under - Aberlour A'bunadh
13 - 20 y/o - Balvenie Doublewood 17 y/o
21 years and over - The Glenlivet XXV
Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who participated in the voting this year.
