Benromach 20th Anniversary Bottling

23rd April 2018
Benromach mark 20th Anniversary since resuming production with a limited edition 1998 vintage Benromach 20th Anniversary Bottling.

Benromach 20th Anniversary BottlingThe Benromach distillery today released a special limited edition whisky to mark 20 years since the distillery was brought back into production, the limited edition Benromach 20th Anniversary Bottling.

This special whisky celebrates 20 years since production started at Benromach after the distillery was purchased by the malt whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail who extensively refurbished and re-opened it in 1998. Distilled in the first year of production, only 3,000 bottles of the special 20th Anniversary Bottling will be available worldwide.

Matured in first fill oak casks in the traditional dunnage warehouses at the distillery in Forres, Scotland, the 20th Anniversary Bottling is part of the classic range of Speyside single malt Scotch whiskies which has made the distillery so popular amongst whisky drinkers over the past 20 years.

The 1998 vintage whisky has been bottled at cask strength 56.2% ABV, it is naturally coloured and is non chill-filtered.

Benromach tell me that the whisky epitomises Benromach’s classic style, they say it has an exceptional vintage character, with rich fruits, fresh citrus and charred oak with subtle spice and a light touch of smoke on the finish.

As you would expect for a special limited release such as this, it is presented in a special Benromach bottle, nestling in an elegantly lined wooden box. It also features copper detailing, reminiscent of the distillery’s two gleaming copper pot stills. A beautifully written and presented hardback book accompanies the whisky and celebrates the time-honoured traditions that are employed into lovingly crafting this unique single malt Scotch whisky.

Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager at Benromach, who joined as a Distiller in 1998 said: "When we began distilling again in 1998, we wanted to recreate the unique Speyside whisky taste which historically had a touch of smoke. The 20th Anniversary Bottling uses the finest ingredients to create a gorgeous whisky that has exceptional depth and smoothness.

"This new expression gives Benromach lovers around the world the chance to own and taste a moment in time from the distillery’s rich history. Part of the Benromach classic range of single malts, this is a rare and exceptional whisky and a fitting dram to unite Benromach consumers globally to celebrate our 20th anniversary year."

The Benromach 20th Anniversary Bottling is a limited release of 3000 bottles, 400 of these will be available for purchase at the Benromach Visitor Centre in Forres and the remainder will be available with a UK RRP of £299 (prices in international markets may vary depending on local taxes and duty) from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
