Rochfort Distillery’s Maxwell Port Cask has received the solitary gold medal at the World Whisky Masters, confirming the bottling as the highest rated whisky aged 12 years and under.

With this beautiful whisky now sold out, Rochfort has announced that they have selected a sister cask for decanting early in the new year.

The distillery has also been awarded Australia’s Brand Innovator of the Year at the Icons of Whisky Awards in recognition of the producer’s uniqueness and high-end craftsmanship within the industry.
