Single malt success

Carpathian Single Malt Whisky’s Cognac, Ruby Port and Amarone expressions took gold at the recent World Whisky Masters 2023 in the UK, whilst Fetească Neagră, Madeira, Burgundy, Commandaria and Vradiano were awarded silver.

At the International Spirits Challenge (UK) Fetească Neagră & Cognac expressions all took bronze, as did their Oloroso expression at the International Wine & Spirit Competition (UK). In the US at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge Cognac & Fetească Neagră collected 91 & 90 points respectively in their category. These top accolades are an important recognition of Romania’s first single malt whisky quality and a well-deserved reward for the team that worked on the project.

Launched in 2008, World Whisky Masters rewards international excellence in whisky production. The competition is organised in London and this year it gathered producers from all over the world, from countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, France, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Norway, The Czech Republic, Japan, India, Taiwan and South Africa. 

Now in its 28th year, the International Spirits Competition is the premier event in promoting outstanding quality spirits from across the globe, whilst the US Ultimate Spirits Challenge evaluates, recognises and promotes the quality of beverage alcohol products. The International Wine & Spirits Competition, champions the best wine and spirits from around the world.
