Benromach, 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky, Speyside
The mothballed Benromach distillery was acquired by independent whisky-bottlers Gordon and MacPhail in 1993 who set about restoring it to modern working order. Officially reopened by Prince Charles in 1998, bottling of the new malt began in 2004. The aim has been to produce a pre-industrial-scale style that reflects the character of a Speyside malt from before the 1960s. Maturation is in 80% Bourbon barrels and 20% Sherry hogsheads, with the final year in first-fill Oloroso casks. Critically-acclaimed and exhibiting a complexity and sophistication that belies its mere ten years of ageing, it was awarded a Gold in the World Whisky Awards 2014, "Best Speyside Single Malt and 12 Years and Under" category.
Recalling the Speyside tradition of topping up fires with cuts of peat when coal ran low, our Scottish barley is grown locally and malted with a little peat smoke to our exact specifications before being ground into grist in our 120 year-old four-roller Boby Mill. We specify a lightly peated barley, giving our whiskies their distinctive Speyside character.
We are a traditional Speyside distillery owned by a family of whisky-lovers intent on making single malt the right way with true character. We keep things simple. A handful of distillers relying entirely on our expertise and senses to make the finest handmade whisky; Speyside single malt matured exclusively in first-fill casks, with a subtly smoky character. It takes just four ingredients – barley, water, yeast and a human touch.
All of our casks are hand-filled, individually weighed, stencilled by hand and stowed in our traditional dunnage warehouses. Why? Because at Benromach we believe making whisky by hand guarantees genuine character.
