It turns out that the best whisky out there not only belongs to a German supermarket chain, but also costs less than £20. The German supermarket chain’s Glen Marnoch Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been awarded a gold medal after a blind taste test at the renowned Spirits Business Scotch Whisky Masters.
It beat the silver medal winning Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve which sells for double the price at £37.45.
The only other gold awarded in the Speyside category went to Tomatin 14-year-old Port Wood Finish, which costs £53.
Aldi’s £12.99 Highland Black 8-year-old Whisky also picked up a silver medal, making it one of the cheapest bottles to win a prize.
