Benromach

Benromach


The distillery is located in the outskirts of Forres in the northwestern part of Speyside. Benromach was founded in 1898 and is amongst the smallest distilleries in Speyside. It needs only a few people to run and make whisky and the production is just 200.000 liters a year. The distillery is owned by independent bottlers Gordon and MacPhail, who bought it in 1993, ten years after it was taken out of service by its previous owners ‘United Distillers’. A mix of old and new whiskeys are produced and even experimentation is happening with peat-smoked whisky.
