  • 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.




  • A special jewel

    In an age when stocks of older single malt Scotch whiskies are a rarity, it is a moment of joy to launch our Tomintoul Aged 40 years. This quadruple cask release is unique.

    Four American oak hogsheads were discovered in the depths of warehouse 4 at Tomintoul Distillery.  These casks were found to contain Tomintoul whisky which had been distilled in 1974. Moreover, when Master Distiller, Robert Fleming, whose family has been distilling whisky for generations, nosed and tasted each cask from the 1974 distillation he considered that the quality of the whisky was truly outstanding.

    Such a rare discovery merited a special bottling where elegance of design and packaging is at a premium.

    The whisky from these exceptional quadruple casks has been bottled in hand-crafted crystal decanters which have been individually numbered.  The gift box has been especially designed to provide a unique presentation featuring a twin door opening with cushioned padding on the inside. The wooded exterior is finished in a classy matt black lacquer. Customised spaces on the inside accommodate a crystal glass stopper and an information leaflet. The quadruple cask release is truly limited and only 500 bottles have been crafted.

    The Tomintoul Aged 40 Years expression is a special jewel. It is rightfully referred to as the “Gentle Dram” and it reveals a depth and complexity only possible from a whisky which has been allowed to mature for 40 slow years.
