Success at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition

We are delighted to announce we have added another ten accolades to our growing collection, after sweeping up at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC).

Located in the heart of the Highlands, we are known for our elegant spirit which has continued to excite the industry and consumers with a remarkable range of premium single malt whiskies.

Judges at the SFWSC 2023 awarded us:

It is the second year in a row that our 18 Year Old has picked up Double Gold at the world renowned competition.

Judges at SFWSC 2023 also recognised Cù Bòcan, a single malt brand distilled at the Tomatin distillery in limited batches every winter, focusing on unusual cask maturations.  Judges awarded the Cù Bòcan Signature and 15 Year Old with Double Gold, while its Creation #5, the latest release which was only revealed last month, took home a Gold.

The SFWSC is one of the world’s most prestigious spirits contests, with experts from the drinks industry leading the judging process. The 2023 event was held at Hotel Nikko in San Francisco from April 13th until April 15th and was another record-breaking year with more than 5,500 entries from all corners of the world.

Graham Eunson, Master Distiller at Tomatin Distillery, said:

“What an honour to receive such praise of our distillery at one of the world’s best spirits competitions. The breadth and depth of our liquid profile has really shone through, with judges selecting the best of our core range and premium editions.

“These kinds of accolades serve as fantastic recognition of our efforts, and the great work of the Tomatin team, who are central to the quality of whisky that we produce here.”

Tomatin’s origins date back to the 15th century, with the first formal distillery established in 1897. Passing through generations of craftspeople working at Tomatin, many for their entire lives, the distillery is embedded in the community. Today Tomatin is renowned for its collection of smooth whiskies.
