Look at what your good taste has gotten us!

Hi, we know it’s been a little while since we checked in, but that’s because our products have been busy winning!  We’re proud to say that the brands we represent have crafted some excellent award-winning expressions that you get to enjoy!  Here’s a highlight of what we’ve earned so far this year:




Won the Gold for being an exceptional spirit that is near the pinnacle of achievement and sets the standard for its category.


Judge’s Tasting Notes, 100% Islay:

Pit fire smoke, roasted plums, marzipan, and baking spices draw you into the glass.  The powerful aromas of smoke marry well with vanilla, nutmeg, and marshmallow on the palate.  It finishes with a whisper of vanilla and sweet spice.


Judge’s Tasting Notes, Machir Bay:

The noble upstart from Islay has bloomed into a visceral character of the stony island.  This iteration of Machir Bay assumes a light straw color but packs a big maritime punch of roasted seaweed, preserved lemon, and wet stones.



Kurayoshi 12 Year

Won a gold at the World Whisky Awards and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.  A balance of sweet and bitter flavors is a characteristic of this whisky.  Nutty almond aroma on the nose, a malty flavor with notes of vanilla and raisin on the palette, and a smokiness can also be detected on the finish.


The Matsui Mizunara Cask

Won Double Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition!!  Double Gold is awarded where all members of the judging panel award a gold medal to the whisky, recognizing it as a product of supreme quality.

The Matsui Peated

This expression also won Gold, as did the Kurayoshi 12 year.



Penderyn Sherrywood
Has also won Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.  The liquid gold in this bottle has been aged in ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks to bring our its rich, fruity flavor.

Those are the highlights so far this year, though the real prize is seeing the satisfaction on our customers’ faces as they enjoy these award-winning malts.

Slainte, Iechy Da, and Kanpai!
