Glen Scotia strives to keep the spirit of Campbeltown alive, sending our whiskies across the world while staying true to the classic Campbeltown Malt Whisky style. Our local team and community take pride in their distillery, and we’re delighted to see a resurgence of interest across the globe for our style.
Twice in 2021 Glen Scotia was recognised for its whisky-making abilities, being named the Scottish Whisky Distillery of the Year at the Scottish Whisky Awards, just seven months after being crowned the ‘Best in Show’ at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition for our Glen Scotia 25-Year-Old expression. It is the first time any distillery has won both awards, let alone in the same year.
In 2022, our Victoriana was further named Best Scotch Whisky 2022 at the Online Scotch Whisky Awards 2022, and further Best No Age Statement Whisky 2022 in the World Spirits Competition.
"For a long time Campbeltown was the forgotten whisky region, however, in recent years there has been a real resurgence in interest in the type of whisky we produce here. "
"From the Victorian era until the present day, whisky has always been at the heart of this community. The techniques and craftsmanship that make our whisky so unique have been passed through generations, and I am thankful that we have managed to revive the whisky-making heritage of Campbeltown long after many of its distilleries fell away. "
"Our distillery is small, but this allows us to focus on quality, and it is so humbling to once again be recognised for our craft. "
“To win Best Whisky in the World for our Glen Scotia 25-Year-Old and to now achieve the status of Scottish Whisky Distillery of the Year is beyond anything we imagined 2021 would bring. It has been a good year for Campbeltown whisky but we’re not stopping here. We are witnessing the town’s renaissance and it is truly wonderful.” Iain McAlister
