The first organic Speyside single malt

Benromach started in 1898… smack dab in the middle of the Great Scotch Whisky Depression. After a few years of floundering, they pulled themselves up by their collective kilts and hit full steam by 1911. The facility changed hands a few times to mixed success. But in 1993, Gordon and MacPhail purchased the site and started refurbishing things in 1997. They officially reopened — with a ceremony conducted by Prince Charles, no less — on their 100th anniversary in 1998, and the first "new" bottling was issued in 2004. Today they produce a wide range of Whiskies of various wood and aging combinations.

Benromach Organic is a lot of things, but at its core it is a Speyside single malt Whisky. It was the first Speyside to officially earn the "organic" designation. Can you taste "organic" in the dram? You decide. We think that you are more likely to taste its handcrafted nature, the fact that it is one of the rare single malts to use only virgin oak casks, and its spicy, youthful nature.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
