About the Distillery
It’s not often a long kept secret is revealed in the world of single malt whisky – but the BenRiach Speyside distillery is a true discovery.
Since 1898, the BenRiach distillery has very quietly been producing quality single malt scotch whisky, which has only ever been enjoyed in very small quantities, by a few discerning individuals who have been fortunate enough to come by a bottle.
BenRiach, located in the Heart of Speyside – just south of Elgin, is once again producing its very special single malt whiskies…as an independent distiller.
The casks contain the highest quality whisky and many reveal, which have taken the industry experts by surprise due to their complexity and subtlety.
Single malts from BenRiach have been called “perfection”, faultless” and “astounding” in Jim Murray’s 2014 Whisky Bible. With the BenRiach Aged 16 Years taking out Best Speyside Single Malt in the recent 2015 Icons of Whisky” “World Whisky Awards.
Some are no less than outstanding examples of the art of whisky production. This whisky stock, reflecting the skill, knowledge and experience that has gone into the making of BenRiach is testimony to the many years stretching back to the 19th century during which the distillery built its reputation. Few distilleries in Scotland hold such a history and few today can have quite such an exciting future.
Expect a beautiful spice which will stimulate the taste buds, sweet sherry, summer berries, cinnamon. Some peated and some unpeated and some in between. These whiskies are exotic and very unique in appearance and flavour. They are extremely worth exploring and perhaps collecting with limited edition bottles being released into the market monthly.
