    Whisky Magazine 2008 Awards

    Just picked up the latest issue of Whisky Magazine. (Feb 2009) Below are the Whisky Magazine American Icons Of Whisky Awards. Thought everyone might enjoy this.

    DISTILLER OF THE YEAR- HEAVEN HILL

    AMBASSADOR OF THE YEAR- THE WHISKEY PROFESSORS, BEAM GLOBAL

    VISITOR ATTRACTION OF THE YEAR- HEAVEN HILL

    BRAND INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR- BUFFALO TRACE

    RETAILER OF THE YEAR
    SINGLE OUTLET- LeNELLS

    RETAILER OF THE YEAR
    MULTIPLE OUTLET- BINNY'S


    These were the winners. There was also those highly commended, and those also nominated. Won't bother to post those unless there's a lot of interest.

    Congrats to Binny's. Well deserved IMHO. Joe

    Hey Joe, what do they say as to why HH got the Distiller of the Year and what got BT the Brand Innovator of the Year?

    I get Malt Advocate but not Whisky magazine.

    About Heaven Hill, I quote, "Quietly releasing some excellent whiskey this year and investing in its operation."

    As per Buffalo Trace, again I quote, "Continually pushing the whiskey-making envelope with its experimental programme."

    I've seen both of these magazines on line but aren't they both more about scotch than bourbon? I didn't know if either was worth subscribing to?

    I get MA and look at W every now and then.
    They really aren't worth subscribing to if you want to know about new releases of bourbon.
    By the time they publish something about new bourbons thoses bottles have hit the shelves and are sold out.
    But occasionally they will have a good story.
    SB.com is THE place for bourbon info.
