Overview

Located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres lies Benromach Distillery. From a small and almost lost distillery emerged a single malt withdistinctive qualities reflecting its hand made credentials as well as encapsulating the self-reliance, sophistication and modern values of Scotland today.Established in 1898, the distillery experienced many closures and changes in ownership prior to 1993, when malt whisky specialists, Gordon & MacPhail rescued it. Following an extensive reinstallation project, embracing the distillery's original character, Benromach was officially re-opened by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1998.Just three experienced distillers create Benromach using the finest Scottish barley and the purest spring water from the nearby Romach Hills. They personally ensure that only the highest quality spirit is filled into sturdy oak casks before being left to mature at Benromach Distillery for many years.

Visited with my wife and toddler. I am a bit of a whisky nut so we chose the Contrasts tour where you taste 4 expressions after the tour. Benromach is on the further reaches of Speyside so if you are in or near Forres /...More

Visited her for a tour and a tasting. The tour guide we had was very amiable and had a great knowledge of the process. Very interesting to hear of the seeming archaic methods in comparison to larger scale computerised distilleries, meaning the skill of the...More

Freshest whisky. Small, manned rather than computerised. Stories that do not produce scotch nut market it and masked it are defaced here.

This is a small distillery. The tour we took only had 2 other people on it. The guide was informative, and friendly. Once we finished the tour, they settle you in to the tasting room and bring you a couple of whisky tastes. The tasting...More

Nice staff at this little distillery. Tour took about one hour, unfortunately there is no photography allowed inside the building. You get a wee dram after the tour and have the option to taste some more of their whisky.

So glad we dropped in and had a tour, well worth it. A wonderful tour, a great guide with great knowledge and such a brilliant building. So glad they have restored it and whisky is now flowing from this distillery. Oh, the whisky ain't bad...More

A wonderful cottage distillery exhibiting the true craft of whisky making - not the mechanical style which many of the large distilleries have become. Tour was very informative and friendly. We truly felt welcomed. And to top it off the product is top notch.

Having done tours at distilleries of varying sizes, I was interested in Benromach as about the smallest distillery in the Speyside area. The buildings are attractive & they have a lovely reception area with items for sale & a place to relax & enjoy a...More
