SULLIVANS Cove Tasmanian Single Malt takes Gold and two Silvers in London

Luxury Tasmanian single malt whisky Sullivans Cove, won Gold with its French Oak Cask and two Silvers with its American Oak Cask and Double Cask whiskies at the global whisky tasting competition, the World Whisky Masters today in London.

In the highly competitive challenge that saw Sullivans Cove take on other single malts from around the world, it was the Tasmanian that ended up with top prize in the super-premium category.

Judging panel chair and whisky commentator Neil Ridley said, “The highlights were undoubtedly Antipodean-themed, with Tasmania’s Sullivans Cove distillery creating the biggest surprise of the day with their consistently well produced range of single malts.” Competition judge Shannon McCoy was especially impressed with Sullivans Cove’s offerings, remarking on their unique style compared to other international single malts.

Between large gulps of whisky Patrick Maguire, Sullivans Cove’s Distiller, was unsurprisingly very excited with the results: “We have put some really hard work into making the best whisky that we can over the years, and it is such a good feeling to consistently come out on top on the world stage!”

These latest medals add to Sullivans Cove’s growing swag of awards won over the past five years in the major international whisky tasting challenges, including Liquid Gold Awards from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible in 2007 and 2010 as well as three gold medals at last year’s World Whisky Masters and “Best Other Single Malt” (for non-Scotches) at the World Whisky Awards in 2007 and 2011.

The World Whisky Masters is part of The Spirits Business’s Masters Series, one of the world’s biggest and most influential spirits blind tasting competitions.
