Taylor's Port takes home two from Cellars in the Sky awards

Published:  24 February, 2016

Taylor's has won two medals at the annual Cellars in the Sky awards, held at the Hilton London Bankside earlier this week.

The port producer received a silver medal for its 20 Year Old in the best first class fortified/dessert category, and a bronze medal for its 10 Year Old Tawny in best business class fortified/dessert.

The awards were first established in 1985. They celebrate the best wines served to business and first class airline passengers worldwide.

This year attracted entries from 35 airlines.

Both of Taylor's award-winning Ports were part of the Singapore Airlines wine list, which won gold for the best overall wine cellar.

The winners were selected in a series of blind tastings at the Hilton London Metropole in December by a team of judges under the leadership of Charles Metcalfe MW.

Taylor's Port is owned by the The Fladgate Partnership, which also owns Croft and Fonseca Port brands.

Taylor's recently announced the release of a 1966 Single Harvest Port, following on from its successful 1965 and 1964 releases.

The 1966 Single Harvest will retail at around £150, and will be presented in a classic frosted bottle, itself packaged in an wooden box.

It will be available from a range of fine wine merchants, including Farr Vintners, Fine + Rare, Bordeaux Index, Lay & Wheeler, Albany Vintners and Speciality Drinks.
