Lumsden, who is responsible for LVMH single malts Glenmorangie and Ardbeg, was described as a “pioneer in the malt whisky industry” by the judging panel.
The awards also recognised the Ardbeg Distillery, which was named visitor attraction of the year, while Glenmorangie was highly commended in the distillery of the year category.
“I’m honoured that myself, along with Glenmorangie and Ardbeg, have been recognised for our pioneering contributions to the industry,” said Lumsden.
