Located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres lies Benromach Distillery. From a small and almost lost distillery emerged a single malt withdistinctive qualities reflecting its hand made credentials as well as encapsulating the self-reliance, sophistication and modern values of Scotland today.Established in 1898, the distillery experienced many closures and changes in ownership prior to 1993, when malt whisky specialists, Gordon & MacPhail rescued it. Following an extensive reinstallation project, embracing the distillery's original character, Benromach was officially re-opened by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1998.Just three experienced distillers create Benromach using the finest Scottish barley and the purest spring water from the nearby Romach Hills. They personally ensure that only the highest quality spirit is filled into sturdy oak casks before being left to mature at Benromach Distillery for many years.

We had never been on a distillery tour before and as we were staying in Nairn, this was accessible for us. So glad we did. Visiting out of season, no queue and so much more personal. We 'toured' the site with the very knowledgeable and...More

Tour was about an hour. Not part of big conglomerate so this distillery was very different from he other one we saw (Blair Athol in Pitlochry). Both were very interesting and recommended.

We visited in November, out of season. As the two of us were the only ones on the tour I expected a brief run around and little interest; the complete opposite was the case. Our guide was interesting, informative and quickly ascertained our level of...More

Benromach was recommended to us . . . and our experience confirmed that recommendation. Given that the distillery is small, there is the "personal touch" in everything they do. We had a wonderful visit and informative tour (thanks, Brian!) and even got to meet the...More
