Blended Whisky Company’s The Lost Distilleries Blend’ won the title World’s Best Blended Whisky at the 2014 World Whiskies Awards. This prestigous award marks the first World Whiskies Awards win for The Blended Whisky Company and for ‘The Lost Distilleries Blend’. For the past eight years, whisky giant Suntory has taken the top honours six times in the World’s Best Blended Whisky category, winning four times with Hibiki 12 Year Old and twice with Hibiki 30 Year Old. The Blended Whisky Company bested contenders such as Jameson Select Reserve Small Batch, Hibiki 21 Year Old, and Hankey Bannister 40 Years Old.
The Lost Distilleries Blend’ is a supremely complex and elegant Blended Scotch Whisky made exclusively from spirit distilled at now silent distilleries. The 20th Century saw the closure of distilleries all over Scotland, but much of the liquid produced at these now legendary distilleries has been well preserved. Whisky from lost (often also referred to as ‘silent’, ‘closed’ or ‘mothballed’) distilleries is highly prized by collectors as many of the stocks are now extremely rare. It is a simply incredible blend of truly historic whiskies. Complex, perfectly balanced and exciting throughout.
The Lost Distilleries Blend received a score of 94 points from Jim Murray in his highly acclaimed Whisky Bible. As Mr Murray noted, “Whoever lost it better find it again: this is how you dream every whisky should be.”
