The BenRiach distillery, one of the few independent Scottish distilleries left, was founded in 1898 by John Duff. The distillery has largely remained inactive during the 20th century since it was mothballed in 1900 due to the collapse of a major Scotch Whisky purchaser. It was reopened again in 1965, but remained struggling until 2004 when it was acquired by an independent consortium. The company is now lead by two South African funding partners, Geoff Bell and Wayne Keiswetter, and Scotch expert Billy Walker.
In the Heart of Speyside, between the barley fields and the foothills of the Grampian Mountains, lies this famous Scottish distillery. As for all great distilleries they use mostly, if not exclusively, resources that are locally available. The grains used for production grow all around the distillery and the water is drawn through the rocks from deep below.
This 10YO has all of the characteristics you’d expect from a classic Speyside Whisky. Spending time in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, this single malt is teeming with vibrant fruit-filled flavors, and warm notes of oak spices and green apple as well as the signature peach and apricot flavors characteristic of BenRiach. But it doesn’t stop there, this delectable Whisky also features notes of banana, with a hint of aniseed, lemon zest, and barley. An incredible orchestra of flavors, this 10YO has a depth and complexity you might not expect from a dram its age. So be a dear, treat your tongue.
