  • Tomintoul Wins at London Spirits Competition


    Results just out today! At the first-ever London Spirits Competition, which took place in London on March 8-9, Tomintoul 16 Year Old won a Gold medal, which is the ultimate seal of approval in the global spirits industry. In order to receive this distinction, it needed to score highly in three different categories: Quality, Value and Packaging.  There was also Silver Medals for Tomintoul Tlath and Peaty Tang.


    In contrast to other spirits competitions, where distilling ability and technical expertise sometimes receive primary consideration at the expense of drinkability, the goal of the London Spirits Competition was to award and celebrate the spirits that spirits drinkers actually want to buy, whether at a retail store or ordering off the menu at a London restaurant.
