A milestone bottling

SPEYSIDE distillery Benromach is marking the twentieth anniversary of its reopening with the release of a special, limited edition bottling.

Only 3000 bottles of Benromach 20th Anniversary Bottling are to be made available, with 400 of these reserved for the distillery’s visitor centre.

The 56.2% ABV liquid is said to represent the Benromach style, with flavours of rich fruits, citrus and charred oak and light smoke on the finish.

Benromach was bought by Gordon & MacPhail in the early 1990s and fully refurbished, reopening in 1998.

“When we began distilling again in 1998, we wanted to recreate the unique Speyside whisky taste which historically had a touch of smoke,” said Keith Cruickshank, distillery manager at Benromach.

“The 20th Anniversary Bottling uses the finest ingredients to create a gorgeous whisky that has exceptional depth and smoothness. This new expression gives Benromach lovers around the world the chance to own and taste a moment in time from the distillery’s rich history.”
