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.
