After much anticipation, TIMAH – Malaysia’s Best Award-Winning Whiskey officially launched virtually today.

The historical moment was officiated by Mr Gilbert Yeo & Mr Kenny Yeo, the Directors of Winepak Corporation the firm that founded and produced the remarkable TIMAH. Esteemed members of the media also attended and enriched the virtual event.

The event that kicked off at 5:30 pm was featured live on Facebook as well. Attendees witnessed the strong historical background of TIMAH’s production and journey, along with live cocktail preparations by Youtuber Whiskey Folks.

TIMAH – the first Malaysian made award-winning whiskey – consists of a carefully crafted blend of two aged peated malts and a neutral spirit of Malaysian origin which makes it an exceptional point of difference in international spirits competitions. These components are blended by the master blender, resulting in the distinctive taste of TIMAH. As its name indicates, TIMAH is a Double Peated Whiskey. Peat is a natural, plant-based fuel source that is burned to provide the heat to dry malted barley, giving the resulting whiskey its characteristic smokey flavour and aroma. On the nose, TIMAH is a light, fruity whiskey that is a harmonious mix of primarily smoke, with a hint of a floral bouquet. It moves through a smokey palate before settling into a sweet, light oak finish.

TIMAH has been gaining success since it was formed as the whiskey won silver medals in both the International Spirits Challenge 2020 (ISC) and the Annual San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020 (SFWSC). In ISC, TIMAH competed against over 70 countries and in SFWSC, it was marked by the judges as “an outstanding spirit that displays refinement, finesse and complexity”.

This year in 2021, TIMAH elevated to greater heights upon scoring 92 points at the International Wine and Spirit Competition And of course, the main highlight of the virtual launch event, TIMAH won gold for the ‘Best Malaysian Whisky’ award at the International Whisky Competition® 2021. The International Whisky Competition® is the world’s most-followed whisky competition, reaching communities on various social media channels. Malaysian Whisky hadn’t been a category in competitions prior. We believe the organizers created this specific category due to TIMAH’s outstanding quality.

“I’m proud and thankful to share that TIMAH our award-winning signature whiskey, and our other brands have been widely accepted and desired by both local and international markets. The continuous support of our consumers and partners means the world to us, and I look forward to continuing to receive endless support from each and every one of you,” said Gilbert Yeo, Director of Winepak Corporation Malaysia.

“Winepak and Malaysia should be very proud of TIMAH. International competition judges have scored it highly against world-class whiskies, giving it well-earned awards. I hope you will see TIMAH as a Malaysian whiskey in its own right, enjoy it and give it the recognition it deserves,” said Tony Allen, former Operations Director of Asia Pacific in Allied Domecq, and a mentor to Mr Gilbert & Mr Kenny Yeo, Directors of Winepak Corporation Malaysia.

TIMAH is set to continue its journey by educating consumers on the rich history of Captain Speedy & whiskey cultures around Asia. It will also elevate according to the latest trends and entertain its consumers with unique flavours that fits their palate perfectly while keeping quality as the utmost priority. This remarkable whiskey is officially being sold and distributed in Malaysia by Thai Seng Liquor Sdn Bhd, in Singapore by Ang Leong Huat Pte Ltd, in Taiwan by Muteboo International, in the USA by California Wine & Spirits LLC, and in Dubai by PKGS International Trading FZC.

The production of TIMAH and other well-known liquors by Winepak Corporation is certified under The Food Safety System Certification (FSSC 22000). This globally recognized qualification sets the highest standards of production quality and safety.
