Way back in 1898 a Mr D. MacCallum and a Mr F Brickman founded the Benromach Distillery.
In 1993 the Distillery was taken over by the independent bottlers Gordon and MacPhail of Elgin and then took on the task of restoring it back into full working order. They made very little changes but it was now able to be operated by a single man. Prince Charles in 1998 officially opened this distillery and the start of new malts bottling’s began in 2004.
This Malt of the Month is one of many expressions produced at Benromach and the Whisky Boys highly recommend that you check out their website for these details and some of the history of this fine old distillery.
