Notes from the bottle.
Is located in the ‘Heart of Speyside’, in the North-East region of Morayshire. BenRiach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in 1898, BenRiach draws its water from the Burnside springs located underground, deep below the distillery.
The distillery started producing malt whisky back in 1898 but was operational for just two years before the ‘Pattison crash’, in 1900, when many distilleries closed. However, next to Benriach was the sister distillery Longmorn which had enjoyed sporadic periods of production during BenRiach’s lengthy hiatus and continued to source some of their malted barley from the floor maltings at BenRiach and kept it alive.
In 1965, the Scotch whisky industry entered a golden era, and suddenly new distilleries and mothballed distilleries opened, including BenRiach. Production re-commenced immediately. Fast-forward to 2004, and the beginning of the most exciting period in BenRiach’s history. It was in April of that year that BenRiach became independent, having been purchased by The BenRiach Distillery Company Limited. This independent ownership allows the distillery to experiment with several interesting wood finishes and it continues to produce whisky from both peated and non-peated malted barley.
The BenRiach portrays its own uniqueness through the particular methods and skills of the men who craft the whisky, the ingredients used, the distinctive copper stills and the high quality casks selected for maturation.
BenRiach crafts unpeated, peated and triple distilled malt whisky and holds some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. Small wonder the distillery team have nicknamed the distillery ‘The Lab’.
It is one of just two remaining distilleries in Speyside to distill whisky using malted barley from its own onsite floor maltings, a time honoured method that is celebrated for one month each year.
The distillery is generally not open to the public but due to the high level of interest it offers an exclusive Connoisseur’s Tour. The Connoisseur’s tour lasts approximately 1 and a half hours covering production, warehousing and their floor maltings finished off with a selection of drams back in the board room. You will be able to see how our single malt whiskies are created by our passionate team and taste the result of their craftsmanship.
