Most Awarded Distillery at SFWSC

We are proud to announce that after our incredible success at this year's San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Loch Lomond Distillery has been named as the Most Awarded Distillery of the Year.

Most Awarded Distillery
The SFWSC is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious spirits competitions in the world, judged by renowned experts in their fields with decades of industry experience.  This year, the SFWSC judged 6000 entrants across 31 separate categories, and through a rigorous judging process, including a blind tasting, each entry is considered on its own merit. A Double Gold is awarded to those spirits that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel.

Loch Lomond Distillery won an incredible 21 awards at SFWSC 2023, 17 medals across our Loch Lomond Whiskies portfolio, with a further 4 awards for Spearhead Single Grain Whisky and Noble Rebel Blended Malt Scotch Whisky. 

Judges praised our distillery for its consistency, quality and innovation. This accolade only strengthens our desire to keep producing consistently high quality whiskies whilst innovating and exploring both flavour and process to create exceptional new products.

Colin Matthews, our Chief Executive said: “Loch Lomond Distillery has received significant investment in recent years allowing us to expand our whisky making capabilities and develop new styles in the single grain and blended malt categories. 

“It is one of the most innovative in Scotland, using bold techniques to explore flavour creation in an inventive and creative way. We have been distilling whisky this way for generations, but are only just starting the realise the potential of our capabilities.

“To receive over 20 individual awards for our whiskies underlines the work that has been delivered in recent years to define our ranges. It is a huge step forward in our growth plans and something we are incredibly proud of. 

“This is the start of an exciting journey for Loch Lomond Distillery and we have a number of exciting releases and initiatives in the pipeline.” 

We want to express our appreciation to all of our dedicated team, whose passion, expertise and commitment to excellence and innovation has made this achievement possible. This is a fantastic achievement for our distillery and to have been recognised at such a level is an honour.
