Description

Unusually for a speyside this is quite heavily peated in a style more common over 100 years ago. An explosion of aromatic peat reek, with fragrant hints of honey, fruit and mellow oak. On the palate an avalanche of peat, followed by an extravagant and complex mix of fruit, heather, nuts, oak wood and spices.

More Information

Established in 1898 by the Grant family on the same site as Longmorn Distillery, Benriach Distillery was mothballed after just two years of production following the ‘Pattison Crash’. In 1965 the distillery was re-opened by Glenlivet Distillers after a period that saw most of the distillery re-built. In 1978 Benriach was purchased by Canadian whisky firm, Seagrams and as a result of the need to step up production, Benriach was extended from two stills to four. In 2004 the distillery was acquired by an independant consortium and has become possibly the most exciting and innovative distillery in Scotland
