Glenfarclas 30 Years Old named Best Whisky in Australia

Glenfarclas 30 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been awarded the Trophy for ‘Best Overall Whisky’ at the 2009 Australian Malt Whisky Awards; Australia’s most respected Whisky Awards. Conducted by the Malt Whisky Society of Australia, it is the second time the Glenfarclas 30 Years Old has received this prestigious honour, following a win in the inaugural 2003 awards. At the awards dinner the Glenfarclas 30 Years Old also picked up the coveted ‘Members Choice’ Trophy.

Independent and family owned since 1865, J. & G. Grant have been producing the award winning Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky for six generations. The distillery produces a traditional Speyside whisky with a heavy sherry influence. Commenting on the Glenfarclas 30 Years Old, Peter Godden, Chairman of the Judges said, ‘Pure, perfect sherry and malt combine. Clean, precise and rich with a flavour that drives on and on. A complete, perfect sherried style’.

Judging for the awards is conducted under international protocols. Craig Daniels, Chairperson of the Malt Whisky Society of Australia explained, 'Our intention is always to reward excellence in the bottle and to remove any other considerations from the equation’.

The Glenfarclas portfolio is distributed in Australia by Angove Family Winemakers. Commenting on the award, Richard Angove, Brand Manager, said, ‘As distributors of Glenfarclas in Australia since 1993, Angove Family Winemakers are thrilled with this result. Glenfarclas Single Malts are the pinnacle in their category and this award is testament to the Grant family who have such history and experience in creating these malts’.

George Grant, sixth generation of the family to own and manage the Glenfarclas distillery said, ‘It’s great to hear that Glenfarclas is being appreciated down under’.
