The most expensive Scottish whiskey costs no less than $ 300, or seven times the price of Loch Lomond Reserve Blended Scotch Whiskey.

The Loch Lomond whiskey has been described as & # 39; exceptionally well balanced with a perfectly smooth finish & # 39 ;.

Coles acting chef Liquor and Hotels Cathi Scarce said the award bears witness to the knowledge, passion and hard work of the Loch Lomond team.

& # 39; It is fantastic to see such strong international results for our exclusive supplier partners. We are determined to partner with the best distilleries in the world and at such a price anyone can afford to try one of & # 39; the world's best whiskeys, & # 39; she said.

The mixed spirit, once associated with old-fashioned gentlemen's clubs, has a renaissance among millennials – with strong growth among young women who are now exploring drinks that were once considered the domain of well-off older men .

In Australia, 25 to 34-year-olds are the fastest-growing demographic market for whiskey sales, a trend that began in 2007 with the debut of the hit series Mad Men, because the suave refinement of the whiskey-loving 1960 & # 39; s advertising companies led to a reassessment of the cool credentials of the mind.

The Loch Lomond Distillery is located on the shores of Loch Lomond, a natural wonder in the heart of Scotland. It is one of the largest private distilleries in Scotland.

The Double Gold for Loch Lomond Reserve Blended scotch whiskey was one of five won by the Scottish distillery, which also won three gold and six silver medals.

The competition is one of & # 39; s most respected spirits competitions in the world, where judges taste thousands of entries blindly for four days.

One of the highest awards of the show is a double gold medal awarded to the entries that receive a gold medal classification by each member of the jury panel.

Loch Lomond Master Blender Michael Henry said he was overwhelmed by the positive reaction of the distillery whiskey to the competition.

& # 39; Our unique distillation style and the wide range of old whiskeys we have put in barrels in recent decades, gives us the opportunity to make top quality whiskeys, such as Loch Lomond Reserve, and the is great that this has been recognized by such a & # 39; n prestigious jury panel, & # 39; he said.
