Storywood wins big in spirits competition season.

Since its launch in 2019, Storywood Tequila has garnered international acclaim from both industry insiders and discerning consumers. Despite being new to the scene, the Storywood Tequila range has a wealth of awards under its belt with medals received in some of the world’s most influential and respected competitions, including a Double Gold award for Storywood Speyside 14 Añejo at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020, as well as the Chairman’s Trophy for excellence and Top 100 Spirits medal, awarded to Storywood Speyside Cask Strength 7 Reposado at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2020.

Storywood Speyside 14 Añejo also received an Excellent/Highly Recommended medal at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2020. Storywood Speyside Cask Strength 7 Reposado received a Gold medal at the authoritative International Spirits Challenge 2020, and a Gold award for Storywood Speyside 7 Reposado.

Storywood Founder, Michael Ballantyne says: “Our mission is to bring new flavours to tequila through oak. We work with distilleries, wineries and cooperages from around the world to hunt for the freshest casks. Our oak and flavours are what we love, but it’s the places we go and the people that we meet along the way that become our story. Storywood Tequila is our chapter one, with many more to come. We believe the time is right to bring our range of Storywood Tequilas to UK consumers.”
