Over two short periods (1975-1976 and 1983-1986), Benriach was brought in to produce peat malt, which it now distills more regularly. Benriach thus offers a wide range of peaty malts ranging from 10 to over 30 years.

The BenRiach distillery was founded in 1897 by the Grant family, right next to the Longmorn distillery, but it stopped its activity in 1900 after the whisky crisis when the Pattison entreprise collapsed.

Benriach, its wealth: stocks of sherry casks, rums wines ... impressive.

Located at the southern exit of Elgin, on the road to Rothes, in Speyside in Scotland, Benriach was also called "Longmorn II" because the two distilleries are almost Siamese. Benriach had a chaotic start.

Victim of the resounding bankruptcy of Pattisons which precipitated many distilleries in its fall, following its purchases of whisky on credit, the distillery closed after two years. Only its malting areas remained operational, notably to feed Longmorn malt. The distillation did not resume until 1965!

After an extension that brought the number of stills in 1985 from two to four, Benriach changed hands in 2001 and again in 2004. Billy Walker, a prominent personality in the world of whisky, then embarks on the adventure with two investors . The stills find the flame!

Today, it is Brown Forman who is currently the owner of this distillery.

The Benriach distillery is home to an impressive stock of old barrels. Its cellars are full of sherry butts of all kinds (oloroso, pedro ximenez ...), new oak barrels, bourbon barrels and hogsheads dating back to the 1960s, and casks containing wine, rum, Madeira, port, even rioja!

Those who sleep in the traditional cellars (dunnage) bathe in an extraordinary orange light.

The capacity of the distillery is 2.8 million liters of pure alcohol, about 900,000 bottles of Single Malt.

To find your way between peated and unpeated Benriach:

The versions with a name or an adjective are peated (Curiositas, Birnie Moss ...) and the accounts of ages without name or adjective are not peated (10 years, 16 years ...).

Exception: The Heart of Speyside that characterizes the essence of Speyside is unpeated.

Nose: a delicious balance is offered on the nose, with notes of wild honey, peat and allspice. A farandole of yellow pears, ripe melon and peach accompanies the smoky peat in a harmonious concert.

Palate: an exquisite combination of spices, woody notes and creamy vanilla with the sensation of juicy fruit and raw cocoa powder. Infused peat, herbaceous notes and dense smoke enhance this already very full palate.

Finish: a fusion between intense peat, consumed embers and notes of oregano, anise and chicory.
