This process makes the International Whisky Competition one of the most professional competitions of its kind in the world.

Glenmorangie’s Dr Bill Lumsden also took out the award of Master Distiller of the Year.

“We congratulate Dr Bill Lumsden, Master Distiller at Glenmorangie, and his team, for crafting such an elegant whisky, beautifully made and very complex,” said Sebastien Gavillet, Head of Tasting Panel for the International Whisky Competition
