Glenfarclas Distillery took home the title of Distiller of the Year from The Icons, with Whyte and Mackay receiving honorable mentions. Gregg Glass was also named Master Distiller of the Year in the latter, and Invergordon won the top prize in the category of grain whisky. Kieran Healey-Ryder was also highly recognized for his work as the Scotch Whisky Ambassador (Mark Thomson at William Grant & Sons coming out on top).
