Southwold brewer and distiller Adnams is toasting a triple success for its whiskies in the annual World Whiskies Awards for 2018.

All three of the company’s whiskies were recognised in the competition, which involves a panel of 50 international judges, collecting six awards between them.

Adnams Triple Malt picked up three honours, as the Wheat Category winner and Best British Wheat Whisky as well as receiving a design award for its packaging, created by CookChick.

In addition, Adnams Single Malt won silver in Single Malt category and Adnams Rye Malt was the Rye Category Winner and Best British Rye Whisky.

Adnams’ master distiller, John McCarthy, said: “We are really pleased that all three of our whiskies have won within their respective classes in these prestigious awards.

“We have always been proud of our use of locally-grown malts and winning these latest accolades has given us further validation in our production methods and cask selections.”

Adnams spirits are all made from the same grains of barley, wheat and rye that are used to make Adnams beers. The first step in the process is to brew an un-hopped beer as the base for its vodkas, gins and whiskies. This is then distilled in the small batch copper pot stills in the Copper House Distillery, which is situated next to the Southwold brewery.
