Redbreast, the highly acclaimed single pot still whiskey also created at the Midleton Distillery in County Cork, won Double Gold for both its 12 Year Old and 15 Year Old expressions. Powers 12 Year Old, the premium edition of Powers Gold Label, one of Ireland’s favourite whiskeys, also picked up a Double Gold medal.

“To achieve five top awards at this prestigious competition is a huge honour and testament to the skill and dedication of our Master Distillers at the Midleton Distillery,” points out Alex Ricard, chief executive and chairman of Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard. “As owners of Jameson, the world’s leading Irish whiskey, we are continuing to invest in this fast-growing category and these awards will only help to build further consumer advocacy around the world.”

A record number of entries were submitted to the 11th annual SFWSC with 1106 products from 61 countries. Judging was based on a blind, consensual procedure ensuring competitive integrity, making the competition one of the most reputable and recognised competition in the spirits industry.
