Benromach Triple Distilled

4th September 2017
Benromach launch their first Triple Distilled whisky.

Benromach Triple DistilledIt appears that the Benromach distillery have been getting a bit creative, the Speyside distillery today unveiled its first triple distilled single malt whisky which is very aptly named Benromach Triple Distilled.

The new Benromach Triple Distilled joins a very small group of Scotch malt whiskies which have been produced using the triple distillation production method, a method which is more typically associated with Irish whiskey.

Triple distillation was once common in the Scottish Lowlands, but today the only Lowland distillery using the triple distillation production method is Auchentoshan and of course their is also Hazelburn whisky which is produced at the Springbank Campbeltown distillery making the new Benromach a rare Speyside Triple Distilled whisky.

The Benromach Triple Distilled is a 2009 vintage and interestingly the folks at Benromach have taken what will be a lighter fruitier triple distilled spirit and matured it in first fill bourbon barrels for around 8 years before bottling it at 50% ABV in 2017.

Benromach Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank commented: "The launch of our Benromach Triple Distilled single malt marks an exciting time for us here at the distillery as we continue to expand our family of Speyside single malt whiskies.

"This new whisky is distilled in a wash still once and twice in a spirit still, before it is matured in first fill bourbon barrels, resulting in its light, fruity character with a fantastic delicate smokiness. The Benromach Triple Distilled is an exceptional addition to our Benromach family and we think that whisky lovers and Benromach fans will be eager to experience it for themselves."

Keith added: "We handcraft all our whiskies, giving us flexibility to experiment with different distilling and maturation techniques and our new Benromach Triple Distilled is testament to this."

A limited release of 1,300 cases which is around 15,000 bottles with a RRP of 44.99, the Benromach Triple Distilled will be available in the UK and Europe from specialist online whisky shops such as Master of Malt
