The original Benromach Distillery Company was founded in 1898 by Duncan McCallum of Campbeltown’s Glen Nevis distillery and F. W. Brickman, a spirit dealer in Leith. Sadly the distillery closed almost immediately and passed through many hands during the 20th century until finally it was acquired in 1993 by Gordon and MacPhail. By this point the distillery was an empty shell and it took the company 5 years to refit and reopen the distillery.
Benromach 10 Year Old
Benromach 10 Years Old is a multi-award winning Single Malt Scotch Whisky hand-crafted at Speyside’s smallest working distillery. Initially matured in a mix of Bourbon and Sherry casks, the whisky is transferred to European oak Oloroso Sherry casks for a final period of maturation. The result is a beautifully balanced dram, displaying a rich Sherry character, summer fruit flavours, malt creaminess and a light peat smoke influence. There is a rich sherry influence on the nose with fruit and nut chocolate and delicate spiced cinnamon. On the palate delicious forest fruits of raspberries and brambles come through.
