GLEN GRANT® SHINES BRIGHT IN JIM MURRAY’S WHISKY BIBLE 2019, RECEIVES TOP SINGLE MALT SCOTCH HONOR FOR THIRD YEAR IN A ROW
Glen Grant® once again took home top honours for its category in the latest edition of Jim Murray’s anxiously anticipated Whisky Bible – the world’s most-influential Whisky guide. Glen Grant 18 Year Old, the rarest variant in the Glen Grant single malt range, has once again been named “Scotch Whisky of the Year” by the esteemed Whisky writer and reviewer, taking home the top prize in the category for a stunning third year in a row. This again places the Speyside malt as one of the top two whiskies in the world, even as Jim tasted through more than a thousand new entrants for the latest edition of his influential guidebook.
He says: “Once more the stunning Glen Grant 18 Year Old single malt carried the banner for Scotland, displaying Speyside Whisky in its most sparkling light.”
Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible is the world’s biggest-selling and most influential annual Whisky guide. Industry renowned, the compact guide contains roughly 4,500 detailed, professionally analysed and easy to understand tasting notes on the world’s leading and lesser known Whiskies. Each Whisky is tasted by Murray himself and graded with an overall score out of 100.
Founded in 1840 by brothers John and James Grant in Rothes, in Speyside, Scotland, Glen Grant boasts a remarkable, double distillation process, which sets its award-winning single malts apart from the competition. Introduced over a century ago by the ingenious James ‘The Major’ Grant, these hand-designed, tall, slender stills and distinctive purifiers capture only the finest vapours. Still used to this day, the result is a refined and seductively smooth taste for which Glen Grant is renowned.
Dennis Malcolm, Glen Grant’s Master Distiller, commented: “We are thrilled once again this year to be named ‘Scotch Whisky of the Year’. With all of the incredible whiskies that come from our wee corner of the world, winning this award three times in a row is a remarkable honour. We take so much pride in creating our unique golden liquid, and we’re proud to see that the consistent quality of these beautiful products continues to be recognised by industry legends like Jim Murray.”
