Benromach is a traditional Speyside distillery that was established in 1898. The distillery has had numerous owners over time plus two periods where it was mothballed completely. It was purchased in 1993 by Gordon & McPhail the famous maturation and bottling specialists. Production started in 1998 and the first whisky was released in 2004 called ‘Benromach Traditional’. The owners ambition was to bring back the lost taste of Speyside whisky before commercial malting’s started. Back then distilleries malted barley using peat for the fires which gave the barley a hint of smoke. The core range of 10,15, 21yo and Cask Strength Vintage 2012 all possess a slight smokiness. The single malts are traditionally handmade and matured in first-fill casks. The distillery has released special editions in a Contrast Range consisting of Organic, Peat Smoke, Triple Distilled and Cara Gold. Benromach has an astonishing 87 awards for its whiskies since 2015.
