Benromach Triple Distilled (50%)

Benromach is a distillery you just adore. Traditional to the hilt, nothing there is computerized, with that quaint old style of Speyside whisky. So yes, if I had to choose two distilleries to bring back the floor maltings to, Benromach would be the second, but you can’t really hold that against them  🙂 There’s also…

Benromach Week – Speyside’s Smallest (old) Distillery

Until Ballindalloch Distillery was established in 2014, Benromach was Speyside’s smallest distillery. Independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail owns Benromach, having bought it in 1993. It seems like every independent bottler is now opening their own distillery, but for G&M, this is not a new trend. In fact, G&M were in a bidding war for Strathisla in 1950, but lost…
