Seagram's Blenders Pride wins three internationally acclaimed awards
Pernod Ricard India subsidiary Seagram Distilleries Private Ltd won the Gold Award at Monde Selection 2020, Gold Medal at The Fifty Best, and Bronze Medal for Blenders Pride at London Spirits Competition 2020.
Pernod Ricard India celebrates the recognition for Seagram’s Blenders Pride which has received the Gold Award at Monde Selection 2020, Gold Medal at The Fifty Best, and Bronze Medal at London Spirits Competition 2020.
Commenting on the awards, Pernod Ricard India chief marketing officer Kartik Mohindra said, “It is a moment of great pride for us to receive three internationally acclaimed awards for Seagram’s Blenders Pride at Monde Selection, The Fifty Best and London Spirits Competitions. Blenders Pride is not only the pride of India but also globally admired, once again emerging as the winner amongst several international whiskies."
Complemented by a scientific and legal approach, Monde selection’s process goes far beyond regular tastings. The Spirits and Liqueurs jury takes time to share their knowledge and experience, analysing each product individually. The evaluation sessions take place during a period of four months every year.
According to Pernod Ricard India statement, Blenders Pride is an exquisite blend of select scotch malts from Dalmunach, Scotland and Indian grain spirits.
