Whisky distilling was first established at Benrinnes in 1826. The distillery was almost completely rebuilt and modernised in the 1950's. What makes Benrinnes different from other distilleries is most of the whisky produced their is distilled three times rather than the usual twice. This triple distillation method produces a spirit of around 76% volume, several degrees more than can be achieved by double distillation. The stills are grouped in threes not pairs. Almost all the whisky produced is used in the production of blended whisky. In 1966 there was only one set of stills, when the capacity was doubled by installing a second set. As a malt it is highly prized by blenders and it one of the handful of whiskies rated as first Class. Benrinnes single malt whisky bottlings are is still relatively rare, they only became available in official bottlings in the Flora and Fauna Malt series early in the 1990's.
