Benriach Distillery has launched a new look inspired by the Distillery’s creative heritage. The distinctive flavour-forward portfolio of Single Malts have scored raving reviews and top international awards since they were introduced in the global markets in 2020.
They have held No. 3 spot on Whisky Advocate’s list of Top 20 Whiskies of 2020 and gold medals at the San Francisco Spirit Competition.
The new packaging is inspired from the first Benriach Single Malt released over two decades ago. The colour palette is inspired by Speyside’s natural environment. Inspired by the 1994 bottling of the Original Ten, with its fruit-laden complexity and smooth, rounded taste, the new range re-imagines the 1898 origins of Benriach, brought to life in the 21st century through fusing distilling styles with extraordinary casks.
The new Original Ten has a more richly flavoured, rounded malt character. The Twelve balances richly sherries malt with added layers of fruit complexity.
The new Smoky Ten and Smoky Twelve explore the sweet smokiness of Benriach, enriched through innovative combinations of rum, virgin oak and marsala cakes interwoven with more traditional bourbon and sherry. The extraordinarily sweet smoky whisky distilled in the distillery’s smoke season features in the new Smoky Ten and Smoky Twelve year old expressions.
A premium selection of Twenty One, Twenty Five and Thirty Year Old Single Malts are matured in a diverse selection of highly distinctive oak casks, and interwoven with complex layers of refined and mellow smoke. Each aged expression has been meticulously composed for aromatic finesse, sumptuous richness and deep mellow maturity.
Benriach Distillery is one of two distilleries in Speyside that practices traditional floor malting on site. A new, small batch and limited edition ‘Malting Season’ expression will celebrate this time-honoured practice in a ‘Smoke Season’ bottling.
