Benromach celebrates its past with rare 35-year-old expression

Published:  03 February, 2016

Moray distillery Benromach has released a 35-year-old whisky, one of its rarest single malts to date.

Originally built in 1898, Benromach Distillery was forced to close in 1983.

This latest release was laid down before its closure.

Whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail purchased the distillery in 1993 and spent five years on its restoration.

The re-opened distillery has concentrated on producing classic Speyside single malts influenced by the style of Speyside whiskies pre-1960s.

Keith Cruickshank, distillery manager at Benromach, said:  "Benromach 35 Years Old is a very special whisky for everyone at the distillery, as very few casks of Benromach remain from this time period.

"Benromach today is created respecting the traditional working practices of yesteryear and is lovingly handcrafted by sight, by sound, and by touch, using the finest natural ingredients.

"The 35 Years Old is the perfect dram to toast the past, present and future of Benromach."

Sales of Benromach have grown rapidly and the whisky is now exported to more than 30 countries around the world.

Benromach 35 Years Old will retail at £425 and will be available through a range of premium whisky retailers.
