A number of Atom Brands’ spirits have been awarded gold and master medals in the recent Whisky Masters awards series.

In total, 15 gold medals and four master medals were presented across the World Whisky Masters, the Irish Whiskey Masters and the Scotch Whisky Masters — all of which are judged by industry experts in a blind tasting. That Boutique-y Whisky Company were the biggest champions from the Atom portfolio, with The Blended Whisky Company also receiving recognition.

In the World Whisky Masters, whiskies from outside Ireland, Scotland and the US competed, with Atom winning two coveted gold medals; one for That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s English Whisky Co. 8 Year Old in the Single Malt - Premium category, and the other for That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s Slyrs 3 Year Old, which won gold in the Single Malt - Super Premium group and was commended by judges for its “full mouthfeel”.

The Irish Whiskey Masters saw a further three gold medals for Atom, with awards going to That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s Irish Single Malt #2 12 Year Old, Irish Single Malt #1 13 Year Old and Single Malt Irish Whiskey 8 Year Old, which all won in the Single Malt - Premium category.

The Scotch Whisky Masters was where Atom collected the biggest number of accolades, picking up master medals for That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s Port Dundas 25 Year Old  (Single Grain – Aged 19­-30 Years), Blended Malt #3 19 Year Old (Blended Malt – Aged 19­-30 Years), and Blended Whisky #1 50 Year Old — Batch 7 (Blended - Aged over 31 years). Our fourth master was awarded to The Blended Whisky Company’s The Lost Distilleries Blend — Batch 10 in the Blended - Ultra Premium category.

The Scotch Whisky haul was completed with a further 10 gold medals across multiple categories for That Boutique-y Whisky Company.

These wins are just the latest in a series of accolades for Atom Brands, having recently been awarded seven gold medals in the International Wine & Spirit Competition and triumphing at the Gin Masters.
