Jason Craig, Brand Director, Highland Park, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised with the Chairman’s Trophy for our ICE Edition. This award will sit proudly in our international trophy cabinet.

“Our Master Whisky Maker showed great bravery to break from Highland Park’s traditional sherry cask and aromatic peat house style to release our first ever solely bourbon cask aged single malt whisky. These prestigious awards focus on the quality and consistency of the finest spirits in the world and the recognition warms our Viking soul.”

Now in its seventh year, the Ultimate Spirits Challenge led by chairman, F. Paul Pacult, included many of the world’s most famous spirits authorities as part of the New York-based judging panel.

USC judging chairman and founder, F. Paul Pacult, commented: "One of the many advantages of having our own year-round facility is that instead of having to judge hundreds of spirits entries over a couple of days like other competitions do, we can, by design, break each category down into smaller flights. This means that USC judging panels can focus on  each category with greater in-depth attention and analytical precision, resulting in truer, more accurate assessments.”
