BENRINNES

Distillery
  • Region: Speyside
  • Address: Aberlour, Speyside
  • Founded: 1826
Product Description

We love how the illustration of “The Bay” brings to life the rugged Southeast coastline of Scotland.

The Benrinnes distillery is featured in Chapter 4 and it’s a heavier, more full-flavoured experience than your ‘typical’ Speyside single malt.

We love the meaty, nutty and malty qualities of this distillery and it was those qualities we continued to explore throughout our cask selection.

In active American Oak casks, we see a complex whisky develop over time that evolves into a brilliantly robust single malt. It’s no surprise that Benrinnes is highly regarded by blenders here in Scotland. 

Did You Know?

As many as 11 distilleries use water sourced from Benrinnes.

The distillery was originally called The Lyne of Rutherie.

The current distillery is actually about a mile away from the original distillery site.

Distillery Tasting Notes

Nose

Bitter tangerine peel, dark chocolate, cold brew coffee, yeast, almost meaty with some slightly tart white wine. Pencil shavings, toasted oak and spices on the back end - cinnamon.

Palate

Benrinnes carries weight and the nutty style is really clear on the palate. Fruit notes dance around the savoury qualities providing great contrasts and complexities. 

Finish

A touch of spiced oak in the back. A medium finish with hints of tropical fruit and rich warm malty tones.
