Benromach Whisky Distillery Speyside
On the outskirts of the Royal Burgh and ancient market town of Forres lies Benromach Distillery, the smallest working distillery in Speyside. Here whisky was first made in the final year of the 19th Century.
Benromach continues to produce its golden spirit for connoisseurs the "world over" to savour and enjoy.
Founded in 1898, this imposing distillery lay silent and empty for a number of years and suffered many closures and changes in ownership prior to 1993, when malt whisky specialists, Gordon & MacPhail, rescued it. They set about an extensive re-installation programme to bring Benromach back to its former glory. HRH Prince of Wales officially re-opened the distillery in its Centenary year.
Now you can see the mash tun, the burnished copper stills and the brass spirit safe where the distiller's craft creates the unique qualities of the single malt.
Now in production, Benromach displays all the traditional warm characteristics once so evident in this Speyside distillery.
During your visit discover the time-honoured skills, which bring together locally grown barley, yeast and the cool, clear water from the nearby Romach Hills, to produce a whisky full of character and distinction and one that remains true to its heritage.
'Nose' and enjoy a dram of the award-winning Benromach Single Malt in the old Drier House, now our Malt Whisky Centre.
