Oamaru, New Zealand– May 8, 2014 – He’s believed to have visited more whisky distilleries than anyone on earth and Jim Murray’s 2014 Whisky Bible
boasts over 4,500 whiskies. But few score 94 points or higher, receiving Murray’s highly sought ‘liquid gold’ status.
In the latest edition, The New Zealand Whisky Company’s South Islan Single Malt 21 y.o. scored 95 points, placing it in the highly coveted category.
This is the first time ever that a New Zealand whisky has appeared in a category that has catapulted some distilleries, such as Amrut, from unknowns
to the world stage.
