Ian Macleod Distillers is celebrating after an outstanding win at The Asian Spirits Masters in London as its three finest Single Malt brands swept the board with a total of five awards.
在倫敦舉辦的亞洲烈酒達人獎競賽中,知名烈酒集團伊恩麥克勞德酒廠以旗下三大單一麥威士忌品牌橫掃五項大獎,優異成績傲視群雄。

The medals were awarded to: Scotland’s slowest distilled whisky, Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky; the heavily-peated Smokehead Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky and the recently re-launched and award-winning ‘can-dhu’, spirit Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
在本次亞洲烈酒達人獎中獲此殊榮的三個品牌分別是:蘇格蘭最慢速蒸餾的格蘭哥尼高地單一麥威士忌、重泥煤口味的蘇摩克艾雷島單一麥威士忌及以「can-dhu」新風貌重新包裝上市的獲獎威士忌──斯佩賽坦杜單一麥威士忌。

Only nine medals were presented in the whisky category, making Ian Macleod Distillers the biggest winner.  The awards are:

The Asian Spirits Masters seek to find and reward the finest spirits brands in Asia on the world stage. Chaired by The Spirits Business and a panel of leading, independent spirits specialists, The Asian Spirits Masters is open to all brands available to buy in the Far East and was judged in a blind tasting from entries from across the world. Each spirit is judged on its own merit and is not chosen by comparison.
亞洲烈酒達人獎舉辦目的旨在發掘並獎勵這些在全球亞洲市場中品質最精良的烈酒品牌,得獎酒款由烈酒商業雜誌和頂尖中立的烈酒專家們所組成的評審團所選出。亞洲烈酒達人獎開放給所有在遠東地區上市的品牌參加,來自世界各地的參賽酒款在盲飲中進行品評,所有烈酒酒款皆為單獨評分,而非以比較方式遴選出來。

Iain Weir, Marketing Director for Ian Macleod Distillers said: “We are exceedingly proud that, once again, our brands have been recognised in what is an extremely competitive market.
伊恩麥克勞德酒廠的行銷總監伊恩威爾表示:「我們真的感到相當驕傲!在競爭如此激烈的烈酒市場中,我們的品牌又再次被大家注意到了。」

 “It is particularly exciting to see that Tamdhu has now won top awards in each of the three competitions entered since its re-launch last year. We are also delighted that the new Glengoyne 25yo has been awarded a gold medal in its first competition,” Iain continued.
他繼續說道:「最讓人感到興奮的是看到坦杜在去年重新整頓上市後,在三名競爭者中脫穎而出。我們也很榮幸看到格蘭哥尼25年首次出征就獲得了金牌獎。」

“Each one of these malts boasts its own unique qualities making them worthy winners of these prestigious awards.”
「這三個獲獎的威士忌品牌各勝擅場,也無怪乎他們會在這場競賽中獲得佳績。」

Unlike most other single malt whiskies, Glengoyne dries the malted barley using only warm air resulting in an extremely subtle yet complex malt where all the delicate flavours are freely expressed. The whisky completes its journey to the bottle in some of the finest Oloroso sherry casks within the industry. Glengoyne is distilled slower than any other malt whisky in Scotland making it ‘worth the wait’.
和其它單一麥威士忌不同的地方是,格蘭哥尼只以溫暖的空氣來烘乾麥芽原料,讓酒體顯得輕柔,但當許多細緻的口感完全表現出來後,又能具有良好的複雜度。威士忌最後會在頂級Oloroso雪莉桶內陳年後才裝瓶。格蘭哥尼的蒸餾速度比起它牌威士忌慢上許多,在這種慢速工法之下產生的酒質絕對值得各位愛酒人耐心等待。

Smokehead is a heavily peated, exceptional Islay single malt whisky of the highest quality. Powerful and warming, it takes you on an explosive rollercoaster of peat, smoke and spice with a delicate sweetness on the finish.
蘇摩克向以重泥煤口味著稱,在風格特殊的艾雷島單一麥威士忌中是品質最好的。力道強勁溫暖,爆炸性的泥煤口感讓您彷彿坐了一趟雲霄飛車,煙燻和香料味之後,尾韻帶著可口甜香。

Ian Macleod Distillers is one of Scotland’s leading, independent family owned distillers. The company acquired Glengoyne distillery in 2003, Tamdhu in 2011 and launched Smokehead in 2006.

伊恩麥克勞德酒廠是蘇格蘭眾多頂尖獨立家族酒廠中的其中一員,在2003年取得格蘭哥尼酒廠經營權,2001年接手坦杜酒廠,並在2006年開始推出蘇摩克品牌。
