Finnieston Distillery Company toast World Beverage Innovation award

We recently launched our unique range of craft Scotch whisky cocktails and we are now celebrating the incredible news that we have won a leading industry award.

We managed to take home the prize for Best Premium or Adult Drink at the World Beverage Innovation Awards, presented at the Drinktec 2017 trade fair in Munich, Germany.


The awards showcased some of the drinks industry’s most ambitious new products and developments and this year attracted more than 200 entries from 33 countries.

We launched our new ready-to-drink Scotch whisky-blended cocktails in cans in June with the range including Finnieston Fling, Old Fashioned Green Tea, Scotch on The Beach and Shanghai Sour.

Winning such a prestigious international prize at such an early stage in our development is really gratifying especially as these awards are specifically designed to recognise innovation. We’ve worked hard to take an innovative approach to all aspects of our drinks, whether that’s the cocktail recipes themselves, the packaging or our marketing strategy. 

We believe our cocktails are bringing a unique twist to the world of whisky and receiving this kind of recognition gives real impetus to our long-term ambition of taking FDC’s products into overseas markets.
