If you think about Benromach you would think about a lightly peated Speyside Single Malt Whisky with lovely fruity, sweet and malty notes.
Gordon & MacPhail decided that Benromach should make an older style of Speyside malts. One that isn’t your everyday style of Speyside single malt whisky that you are used to. This because of their hint of peat smoke.
Benromach matures their single malt whiskies exclusively in first-fill casks and distill their whisky entirely by senses and expertise. All their casks are hand filled and stored in the traditional way in their dunnage warehouses. With all this love, expertise and dedication to their craft it gives it its genuine Benromach character.
Benromach is a small distillery but earned a lot of awards around the world that shows that hard work and dedication to your craft pays off.
Keith Cruickshank is a good example of a distillery manager that know what he is doing and having a vision to look ahead for future generations to come.
Their core range is something special every time you sip it. But their Heritage and iconic 50 year old is something to keep an eye out for.
Benromach might be a brand that you would walk by in a liquor store, but after reading this blog, its a whisky you would grab of the selfs next time your in the store.
I had the pleasure of visiting the distillery and meeting Keith Cruickshank. It was a honor and had a lot of fun. Keith is a knowledgeable man but also very funny and kindhearted.
The distillery looks like a fairytale right out of a fairytale book. The tranquility at the site and kindness of the people working there are something i would not forget anytime soon.
I definitely recommend taking the distillery tour and see how the people working in the distillery do their magic. They still do everything by hand and this is a privilege to see with your own eyes.
If you are at the distillery don’t forget to taste their amazing whiskies. You can visit the visitors center next to the distillery and be amazed by their single malt whiskies.
