I had no idea that Glenrothes was having a Whisky Maker contest, calling it the “The Glenrothes Whisky Maker contest,” in which they were looking for amateur whisky makers from all across the globe. The contest ran from October 2010 to January 2011 and four winners were chosen to spend a week in Scotland this May, with this video being a summary of the highlights on that trip. Two winners were from the UK, one from the United States, and one hailed from Taiwan!
Here’s the video, which has some pretty fantastic production quality:
I’ve seen the distillery before but I’ve never tried any of their expressions. Perhaps that will change this year!
