Seagram’s Blenders Pride, an Indian whisky by Pernod Richard, has won awards at three prestigious spirits competitions – Gold Award at Monde Selection 2020, Gold Medal at The Fifty Best, and Bronze Medal at London Spirits Competition 2020.

Launched back in 1995, Blenders Pride is a popular whiskey in India, made from blending Indian grain spirits with Scottish malt. To win the award at Monde Selection 2020, it was assessed by a panel of independent experts on a variety of parameters that cover sensory, scientific and legal aspects of importance to consumers. The evaluation sessions took place during a period of four months.

“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. At Pernod Ricard India, we have always been committed to offering the finest quality products and delivering value ahead of the curve to our consumers,” Kartik Mohindra, Chief Marketing Officer, Pernod Ricard India commented.
