This is definitely worth celebrating and shouting about, as any spirit that impresses the scrupulous blind assessment from their experienced panel of specialist judges, and goes on to medal, must be considered special.

Carpathian Single Malt’s Whisky trophy cabinet is getting larger by the day, having collected a raft of different awards at various global whisky competitions since the start of the year and now bringing another 8 medals at the recent and prestigious ‘International Spirits Challenge 2024’ (ISC).

Now in its' 29th year, the ISC is one of the premier events in promoting outstanding quality spirits from across the globe. Romania’s first ever single malt whisky came up against a rigorous and independent judging process, and came away with some highly prized medals:

In the Tasting Category for ‘World Whisky’: Carpathian Single Malt Whisky’s Peated Cask Strength ABV 62.2 % was awarded a ‘Gold Medal’ in the ‘Single Malt Cask Strength Whisky’ sub-category. This was followed by seven ‘Silver Medals’ awarded to Carpathian Single Malt Whisky’s Ruby Port, Burgundy, Rhum, Amarone, Madeira, Vradiano & Commandaria cask finishes at ABV 46% and under the sub-category ‘Single Malt Whisky No Age Statement’.

“This is once again a proud moment for our Carpathian Single Malt Whisky team. This competition receives thousands of entries from over 70 countries with many of the world’s leading producers vying for success. It goes to show that Carpathian Single Malt continues to hit the standards of quality, excellence and taste” states Allan Anderson, Master Distiller & Whisky Director, Alexandrion Group.
