Breckenridge, High Proof Bourbon Whiskey wins world’s best blended award sponsored by Blue Box Design at Whisky Magazine awards

Breckenridge, High Proof Bourbon Whiskey has been named the world’s best blended at the Whisky Magazine Awards 2023 in a category sponsored by Blue Box Design, the Stirling-based specialist in the design and manufacture of bespoke presentation boxes for the UK food and drink sector.

The award was presented at the Whisky Magazine Awards gala dinner at The Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London.

This year’s awards ceremony represented the culmination of a rigorous blind-judging process that saw more than 200 expert judges from around the globe assess more than 1500 different whiskies from over 40 countries.

Christopher Coates, editor-at-large of Whisky Magazine and chair of both the Icons of Whisky and World Whiskies Awards, said: “Whisky professionals – whether makers, ambassadors, bartenders, marketers or retailers – are truly going above and beyond to make the category inclusive and fun, while delivering the education required to maintain whisky’s status as the world’s most respected and valued spirit category.”

Blue Box Design Managing Director Duncan Robertson, said: “With growing recognition of the vital role played by design in the branding of whisky, we are pleased to support these awards to help raise awareness of our innovative and sustainable, premium drinks design solutions within the resurgent whisky sector.”
