Benriach Distillery is found in Longmorn, Morayshire, just outside of Elgin. Benriach was founded by John Duff & Co in 1898 but was quickly sold in 1899 to Longmorn Distilleries Co. The distillery was mothballed in 1903 and did not reopen until 1965 when new owners, The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd, bought the distillery. Benriach decommissioned their malting’s in 1999. Now the current owners, Benriach Distillery Company Ltd, have decided to produce part of their requirement of malt at the distillery again. This is great news as there are only about six distilleries still doing some of their own malting. This is fantastic as it will allow more people to witness this great process. Benriach has four stills, two wash and two spirit stills. They produce around 2,800,000 litres of spirit a year. House Style: Cookie like, with touches of butterscotch. Restorative. A mid afternoon malt.
