Glenmorangie Named "World's Best Distiller"

STELLAR YEAR CONTINUES WITH RECOGNITION AS AN IMPACT "HOT PROSPECTS BRAND," DISTILLER OF THE YEAR, UK SPIRITS PRODUCER OF THE YEAR AND BEST-AWARDED SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY

NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Glenmorangie, Scotland's favorite single malt Scotch whisky, continues to thrive in the US after being awarded 2012 Distiller of the Year by the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC). Glenmorangie emerged not only with the biggest prize of the night but was also awarded UK Spirits Producer of the Year as well as Best Single Malt over 15 Years Old with Glenmorangie Quarter Century 25 Years Old.

Glenmorangie's stunning success comes a few weeks after emerging as the Best Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky at the IWSC. Following a meticulous judging process that incorporated both technical analysis and professional blind tastings, the brand garnered more Gold Best in Class and Outstanding medals than any other single malt Scotch whisky over the past six years.

Adding to these accolades, Glenmorangie was also recognized as an Impact "Hot Prospects" brand earlier this year. Impact, a source for global news and research for the drinks executive, creates an annual list of "Hot Prospects" brands. Brands must reach depletions of at least 50,000 nine-liter cases but not over 200,000 in 2011, in addition to a minimum of 15% growth in 2011, and have consistent solid growth the two previous years to join this prestigious list.  A "Hot Prospects" feature story appeared in the October issue of Market Watch. Glenmorangie joins other promising brands that, while varying in size and scale, share a common goal of expanding on their success to take them to the next level.

"The superior quality of our whisky is due to the great yet unseen lengths that we go to in crafting our precious spirit. It is this commitment to quality that has made Glenmorangie the fastest growing single malt in the US and an Impact 'Hot Prospects' brand. To see that standard shine through every year is a tremendous honor," said Brian Cox, Vice President of Glenmorangie US.

Doctor Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks said, "Glenmorangie is constantly refining the way whisky is made with one goal in mind: perfection. To be recognized as Distiller of the Year speaks of our commitment to pursuing perfection. Our craft has been refined over the ages and only continues to get better and better. I'm elated, again, to see the judges choose Glenmorangie to receive such prestigious awards."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
