Our Platinum Award Winner

On the 30th April the Tasting Alliance proudly announced the highly anticipated results of the 2024 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

We are delighted to share that Tomatin 12 Year Old, Tomatin 18 Year Old, Tomatin 45 Year Old (Travel Retail Exclusive) were all awarded with the prestigious “Double Gold” medal. As this is Tomatin 18 Year Old’s third consecutive year of winning Double Gold, it has upgraded its award status to “Platinum” for the first time.

Judges at SFWSC also gave much praise to Cù Bòcan, our lightly peated single malt brand distilled at the Tomatin distillery in limited batches every winter, focusing on unusual cask maturations.  Judges awarded the Cù Bòcan 15 Year Old “Double Gold” gold a second year running, and Cù Bòcan 12 Year Old Batch #1, which is finished in Caribbean Rum casks, with “Gold”.

Founded in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the oldest and largest competition of its kind. Medal winners range from some of the most renowned international distillers to small-batch producers that the competition has helped put on the map. The SFWSC medal is a testament to their hard work and universally recognized indicator of exceptional quality and craftsmanship. In 2022, the competition cemented its position as the largest spirits competition in the world with nearly 5,000 entries, led by Executive Director Anthony Dias Blue and Head Judge Jeffrey Morgenthaler. With over 5,000 entries, this year’s competition marks a momentous increase over previous years, reflecting a vibrant resilience within the beverage alcohol industry.

Graham Eunson, Master Distiller at Tomatin Distillery, said:

“We are delighted with another year of fantastic results from one of the world’s best spirits competitions. We are especially delighted that our beloved 18 Year Old, a staple in our core range for 18 years, has won platinum for the first time.”

“These wins are a fantastic recognition of our efforts, and testament to the great work of the Tomatin team, who are central to the quality of whisky that we produce here.”
