BenRiach, the unconventional Speyside distillery, has reintroduced a gold award winning expression to its core range. BenRiach Sherry Wood Aged 12 Years showcases the distillery’s reputation for creative, multi-faceted maturation. Made using three styles of sherry cask maturation: full sherry cask maturation, combined with Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry cask finishing, the expression offers layers of fruit sweetness and toasted oak spice with a luscious dessert-like finish.
The GlenDronach Distillery, hidden in the fertile landscape of the Forgue valley, deep in the east Highland hills, is celebrating the much anticipated return of its 15 year old expression, The GlenDronach Revival. Revered by single malt connoisseurs around the world, this iconic expression exemplifies The GlenDronach’s rich depths of sherry wood
maturation, continuing the legacy set out by distillery founder James Allardice in 1826, marrying Highland spirit to Spanish oak.

BenRiach Distillery is pleased to announce the release of a new triple distilled expression, aged for 10 years, exclusively for the global travel retail market.
The expression joins the classic and peated BenRiach Quarter Casks in the global travel retail range from BenRiach. The range embodies the unconventional Speyside style of BenRiach and its creative heritage of distilling malt whisky in a ‘troika’ of styles: unpeated, peated and triple distilled.
