We are delighted to announce that Cù Bòcan and Tomatin have won Gold Awards at World Whisky Awards Scotland 2024, receiving the only Gold Awards to be presented in the ‘Scotch Highlands 12 Years and under’ category.
Our experimental Highland single malt, Cù Bòcan, has been awarded a top accolade from the World Whiskies Awards Scotland 2024. Our Cù Bòcan 12 Year Old Batch #1 received the coveted title, ‘Best Single Malt 12 Years and under’ from the Scottish regional judging panel.
Cù Bòcan, which focuses on unusual cask maturations, is distilled in limited annual batches at the Tomatin distillery.
Released in May 2023 with 12,000 bottles released worldwide, Cù Bòcan 12 Year Old Batch #1 is a whisky of innovative complexity. Finished in Caribbean rum casks from Guyana and Barbados, this dram offers a fusion of fresh aromas including grilled pineapple, ginger, and white chocolate.
“It is an honour to receive this recognition for our efforts, and the great work of the team at Tomatin distillery. Cù Bòcan’s triumph at the regional World Whiskies Awards reflects the essence of our pursuit for excellence.
“Meticulously crafted with innovation at our Highland distillery, this award underscores our commitment to pushing the boundaries of traditional whisky craftsmanship and we look forward to the global stage at the upcoming finale in London.”Graham Eunson, Master Distiller at Tomatin Distillery
The World Whiskies Awards are a pinnacle event in the whisky industry and a celebration of excellence. Cù Bòcan will now advance to the next stage, competing against those in other regions for global acclaim at the Global Finale, which will be announced in London on 20 March 2024.
We are so thankful for the various awards we’ve won over the past couple of years, including winning Best in Show for our Tomatin 36 Year Old at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) 2023 and winning a “Gold Outstanding” award for our Legacy single malt at the 2022 IWSC awards.
