CENTRAL CITY BREWERS + DISTILLERS WINS INNOVATION AWARD AT THE CANADIAN WHISKY AWARDS

The Canadian Whisky Awards selects Lohin McKinnon Barley & Rye Lightly Peated Whisky for the Award of Excellence Innovation

SURREY, BC – Central City Brewers + Distillers’ Lohin McKinnon whiskies were selected for several awards at the Canadian Whisky Awards held on January 19th in conjunction with the Victoria Whisky Festival.

Lohin McKinnon Barley & Rye Lightly Peated Whisky has been selected for the Award of Excellence Innovation and a Silver Medal by the Canadian Whisky Awards.

Lohin McKinnon Single Malt Whisky and Lohin McKinnon BC VQA Wine Barrel Finished Whisky were also recognized as excellent products and were awarded Bronze medals.

The Lohin McKinnon Barley & Rye Lightly Peated Whisky was likely seen as an innovator because it blends Canadian tradition of using rye and the Scottish tradition of using peat smoked barley in a world class whisky.

The Canadian Whisky Awards recognize the very best Canadian whiskies and encourage distillers to maintain the highest quality standards. To qualify, the whisky must be distilled and matured in Canada. An independent panel of whisky experts selects the winners after tasting each whisky blind. Operated on a not-for-profit basis, the Canadian Whisky Awards are fully independent of the Canadian whisky industry.
