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.
