We were delighted to clinch the top prize for The Whistler Mosaic Marsala Cask Single Grain whiskey at a glitzy award ceremony in London as it was awarded “Worlds Best Best Single Grain” at the World Whiskies Awards last night .
It is our fourth international gong in the World Whiskies Awards since 2019 and we were also nominated in last night’s finals for the world’s best blended malt for The Whistler ‘The Good, The Bad and The Smoky’.
Winning the world’s best grain whiskey is a massive achievement and proof that we can play on a world stage with the best whiskey producers on the planet.
It is a testament to the hard work and attention to detail of our distillers and larger team and comes on the back of three other ‘world’s best’ awards in recent years.
At the WWA last year, Boann won the world’s Best New Make 2021 and world’s best honey for the Whistler Irish Honey, in addition to the world’s best cream for Merrys Irish Cream Liqueur in 2019.
The awards commend the best whiskies from around the world in 16 categories, covering style and production methods. The first round of blind tastings is judged by independent spirits experts.
From their scores, a winner is selected for each category and country, and gold, silver and bronze medals awarded. Each country winner then competes in round two for the title of World’s Best in each category.
