May 01, 2024

Our exclusive Aberlour 2010 Double Cask Matured and our Morris Inaugural Port have picked up a highly coveted Double Gold medal at 2024’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Scoring 99/100 and 98/100 respectively. Both whiskies are contenders for Best in Class — set to be announced in June.

Three more Whisky Club exclusives walked away with Gold at the competition: The GlenAllachie Double Sherry 2013 Vintage, Loch Lomond Inchmurrin 2010 Madeira Single Cask and Balcones Montilla Sherry American Whisky.

Founded in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) is the oldest and largest competition of its kind and is widely regarded as the most respected and influential spirits competition in the world.

The competition has been dubbed ‘The Oscars of booze,’ and is held in April over two weeks every year, the SFWSC unites a panel of 70 experts across the globe to taste and rank hundreds of entries.

”We’re always incredibly proud of our whiskies,” The Whisky Club’s Head of Whisky says. “And we’re thrilled that our Club exclusives have been recognised by one of the world’s most prestigious spirits competitions. It’s such an honour.”

The win puts the Aberlour 2010 Double Cask Matured in an elite category of whiskies that also picked up Double Gold including The Singleton 40 Year old worth $6,200, Glen Scotia 25 Year Old worth $950, Talisker 45 Year Old worth $7,900, Benriach The Thirty worth $1,000, Glengoyne 30 Year Old worth $1,740 and the Tomatin 45 Year Old worth $14,000.

A first, a last, a 99-point single batch Aberlour.

Aberlour 2010 Double Cask Matured is the distillery’s first-ever vintage release of their flagship multi-gold winning Double Cask, created exclusively for The Whisky Club. Not only that, it’s bottled at 48% ABV instead of their standard 40%. And it’s the first time the multi-award-winning global favourite has ever created a one-off, limited batch release exclusively for anyone before.

It’ll also be the last of its kind, too. The whisky will not be repeated and will not be added to the distillery’s core range.

This historically significant double-gold-winning whisky will be available exclusively to Members of The Whisky Club 3-5 May. If you’re not a Member, Join free now.
