About the Awards
The judging process takes place in two stages. The first round is a blind nosing and tasting by selected judges.
Following this two whiskies from each category will be shortlisted to go forward for judging by visitors and locals during the Festival. These are the only whisky awards that are judged by consumers, and have proved very popular in previous years. You can find out how and where to vote here.
The two whiskies shortlisted in the 12 year old and under category will also be showcased to international visitors, the media and the industry guests on Thursday 1st May 2014 when they will accompany the starter and main courses of the ‘Touch of Tartan’ Festival opening dinner at Glen Grant Distillery.
