Weyermann® Whisky No. 5 voted Spirit of the Year 2022

Fantastic news from Frankfurt: as part of the international DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft – German Agricultural Society) quality test for spirits 2022, our Weyermann® Single Malt Whisky No. 5 was voted best spirit 2022 in the category whisky!

We sincerely congratulate our Weyermann® Master Distiller Philipp Schwarz on this well-deserved award and recognition of his work!

After the fine noble spirit had already received the „Golden Prize“ from the test center of the German Agricultural Society in summer, the decoration as best spirit in 2022 once again confirms the excellent quality of the whisky.

Our Weyermann® Single Malt Whiskey No. 5, a composition of five selected barrels from the Weyermann® Barrelroom, prevailed in the whisky category and impressed with its exquisite aroma profile.

The award of the Weyermann® Single Malt Whisky No. 5 fills our distillery manager and creative mind behind this fine creation with pride. “Of course, I am extremely pleased to receive the “Best Spirit” award in the whisky category. The DLG spirits quality test is highly respected in the industry and I really appreciate the DLG experts. I am all the more pleased about this special award! Also as proof that the best raw materials in combination with well-founded know-how and passion are the basis for an excellent, high-quality whisky!” – says Philipp Schwarz.

The DLG Food Test Center tests the quality of around 30,000 products every year. The selection of the best spirits is carried out by the DLG TestService GmbH in Frankfurt am Main in cooperation with the IfGB Berlin.

The marketable spirits are retrieved from ongoing production and subjected to extensive quality controls. The focus is on the sensory analysis of the products, which provides information about the appearance, smell, taste and consistency. The DLG experts assess the product quality without knowing the manufacturer, which guarantees an objective test result with high significance.

The Weyermann® Single Malt Whisky No. 5 and many other excellent Weyermann® spirits and brewing specialties are available in our Weyermann® shop Living & Drinking!
