The Benromach Distillery Company Ltd is releasing an extremely rare and limited-edition Scotch malt whisky matured for 40 years in a single Refill Sherry Hogshead cask.
Building on the popularity of previous vintage releases from the 1970s, 184 bottles of Benromach 1978, from cask number 2608, are available for worldwide sale.
The single cask (56.3% abv) whisky has a deep golden hue with an aroma of honey and vanilla, along with ripe fruits, lime and a touch of butterscotch and fresh ginger, with smooth sweetness balanced by a hint of pepper. To taste, it has notes of pear and kiwi, with chocolate and spices, and a touch of subtle peat smoke on the finish.
All profits from the sale of Benromach Cask No 1 single malt whisky will be donated to charitable causes
Twenty years after family owned Benromach Distillery was reopened by His Royal Highness The Duke of Rothesay, a rare single malt whisky has been released to mark the occasion.
Benromach Cask No 1 is an incredibly rare and limited-edition expression taken from the first cask that was laid down when the distillery reopened after many years of closure. The cask itself was signed by HRH The Duke of Rothesay, Prince Charles, during the distillery’s official reopening ceremony on 15th October 1998.
Marking a defining moment in the distillery’s history and a key date in this year’s 20th anniversary celebrations, all profits from the sale of Benromach Cask No 1 will be donated to charitable causes.
Red Door Gin launches today. Named after the distinctive red doors at Benromach Distillery, Red Door is a small-batch, handcrafted London Dry style gin.
Inspired by Scotland’s mountains, forests and coastal fringes, Red Door has been lovingly created by a dedicated team of distillers using the finest botanicals to create an elegantly distinctive gin.
Red Door Gin delivers signature notes of juniper and a defining citrus note of bitter orange, with aromatic sea buckthorn, floral pearls of heather and chocolatey rowanberries. Handmade in a copper pot still, affectionately named, ‘Peggy’, the vapour-infused distilling method steams the neutral base spirit through eight botanicals and is then bottled at 45% ABV.
Benromach is a Speyside distillery founded by Duncan McCallum and F.W. Brickman in 1898 and currently owned and run by Gordon and Macphail of Elgin. This piece is dedicated to the whisky we’ve tasted on the evening on Monday 30th of April. An online tasting with a taste of adventure.
A Monday evening, like no other. With a lot of laughter, serious moments, old friends and new discoveries of Scotch Whisky from the Speyside area.
An evening with a lot of whisky flowing, the Benromach tweet tasting. On Monday September 18, a few lucky tasters gathered together online to enjoy two new expressions.
Benromach Château Cissac 2009, a wood finish release and Benromach Triple Distilled, a first of its kind for Benromach. This online tweet tasting was organised as part of the launch of an epic new expression.
The Benromach Distillery Company Ltd, recognised around the world for its Speyside single malts, has launched a first for the Forres distillery – Benromach Triple Distilled single malt.
Benromach Triple Distilled (ABV 50%), is a light golden malt, matured in first fill bourbon barrels, with light, sweet vanilla, chocolate and lemon notes and a lingering smokiness. The malt, a 2009 vintage bottled this year, will have a limited release of approximately 1300 cases.
Benromach Sassicaia, a wonderful and elegant dram. Just like whispering the name, Sassicaia.
And when you do, close your eyes, say Sassicaia with a soft voice and I assure you, a beautiful man (or woman) will come up running with beautiful red and curly hair, lovely. And to make this completely perfect, be sure you have some music of Enya turned on in the background.
Don’t ask me why, but this is an amazing combination.
The first mini-festival drawing Speyside’s finest food and drink producers together in one central venue has been toasted a success, after hundreds of people turned out to ensure it got off the best possible start.
Organisers of Spirit of Speyside: Distilled are in high spirits after finding that mixing the region’s finest whisky with gin, beer and food went down a treat with audiences.

The 10 yr old buddy, I tasted and shared the tasting notes before. I have tom admit that they are mostly the same when it was before, but with a small difference! The 15 yr old buddy however, completely new! Exciting isn’t it. Continue reading →
