New category for Scotch Whisky Masters

1st May, 2013 by Andy Young

The Spirits Business Scotch Whisky Masters has introduced a new category of Single Cask Releases for the 2013 competition.

cask headsThe new category reflects the growing trend for the release of single cask whiskies. With old distilleries having stock rediscovered and subsequently released, single cask bottlings are becoming increasingly popular.

As with all other categories in this year’s Scotch Whisky Masters the Single Cask Releases are split into the various Scotch whisky regions of Speyside, Highlands & Islands, Islay and Lowland.

There has already been a record number of entries into the 2013 Scotch Whisky Masters, and it is hoped the introduction of this new category will help raise the profile of this growing area within Scotch whisky.

A Silver, Gold and Master will be awarded in each category with the Gold and Master award in each category going forward for the ultimate award of Scotch Whisky Master 2013.

The Spirits Business is still accepting entries for the competition up until 7 May 2013, with the judging taking place in a London location on 14 May.
