Breckenridge Distillery, the world’s highest distillery and one of the most awarded craft distilleries in the U.S., celebrates its win for World’s Best Blended in the 2023 World Whiskies Awards. After earning three gold medals at the World Whiskies Awards in February for Best American Blended Malt, Best American Blended Limited Release, and Best American Blended, judges at the award ceremony in London gave the World’s Best Blended award to Breckenridge 105 High Proof.
“We’re honored to be recognized as having another World’s Best product, and I’m so happy for our team,” said Bryan Nolt, founder, and CEO of Breckenridge Distillery. “Their passion and uncompromising commitment to quality make every day at Breckenridge such a joy! I’m so pleased with our entire spirits portfolio – our staff deserves all the props.”
Whisky Magazine’s Icons of Whisky has awarded the industry’s best people, places, innovators, and agencies since 2007 through its World Whiskies Awards. These awards celebrate the World’s Best winners across the 23 categories of whisky. Breckenridge Distillery’s 105 High Proof was selected as a finalist as a result of a rigorous blind judging process from more than 200 judges around the globe that tasted 1500 different whiskies from over 40 countries.

This was a solid year across all of the categories and there were worthy winners all across the globe. It is an honor to celebrate this among so many of the industry’s finest people and long may the industry as a whole, continue to thrive for many years to come.” says Anita Ujszaszi, Whisky Magazine awards director.”
