Tomatin Distillery is celebrating success as winner of the ‘Best Drink’ award at the Highlands & Islands Food and Drink Awards last week. Over 260 people from food and drink businesses in the Highlands and Islands gathered at the Drumossie Hotel in Inverness for the eighth annual awards hosted by Celebrity Masterchef finalist and television presenter Kirsty Wark.
The core range of Tomatin Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (12, 15 and 18 year old expressions) was entered into this brand new award category, aimed at identifying businesses that can demonstrate success in the drinks market. Fighting off competition from another distillery and two breweries, Tomatin was announced the winner with Kirsty Wark citing the “smooth flavour” and “bold packaging” as elements of the entry which most impressed the judging panel.
Stephen Bremner, Sales Director, said: “We are very proud to have won this award. These Awards showcase and celebrate the contribution that Highland and Islands food and drink companies are making to the UK economy, something we should all be proud of.
Our core range of Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky contains multi‐award winning expressions, but this is the first award for the range as a whole. The Tomatin brand has been growing from strength to strength in recent years and we look forward to continuing this in the coming years.”
