Dewar’s Scotch Whisky brings home a host of awards from the International Whisky Competition and the International Spirits Challenge.

Along with a range of awards or the brands many expressions, Dewar’s Double Double 32-Year-Old and Master Blender Stephanie Macleod were awarded ‘Best Blended Scotch’ and ‘Master Blender Of The Year’ for the third consecutive year. In 2019 Macleod made history as the first woman to win the accolade.

“At Dewar’s we aim to push the boundaries of what is expected from the whisky category and have a long-standing commitment to innovation, so we are delighted with our success in the 2021 competition, and it is an honor to be named again Master Blender of the Year”
– Shared Macleod

Adding, “I accept this award on behalf of the whole team at Dewar’s who have shown relentless hard work and dedication, despite the challenges this past year has held. It is incredibly rewarding indeed to see these efforts appreciated.”

Dewar’s Double Double 32-Year-Old was launched two years ago and is one of the crowning jewels in Macleod’s career with the brand. An innovative four-step aging method, called ‘double-double-aging’ was created just for the ultra-premium blended scotch, which won ‘Whisky of the Year’ in 2020.
