It is a great finish to a great year following awards and good scores in other competitions: SF World Spirits Comp, Whisky Magazine and the Whisky Bible.
In addition, we rank this competition highest because it is non-commercial and the 11 judges are all amateur whisky enthusiasts (i.e with no agendas!).

Plans are already advanced for 2011 cask releases and with our new office, shop and Whisky Centre opening in April 2011 we are sure to have a most interesting year!

As per the back of our DRCC tubes "The quest for the Ultimate Dram" continues....and the growth of the AD Rattray brand goes with it.
