About
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.

Charming small distillery with outstanding whiskeys. Heard they recently won first place in a major whisky competition in California. Have been fortunate now for two times in a row to be attended and guided by Robert. Friendly, knowledgeable, with a true Scottish accent.

The tour exceeded my expectations as someone that doesn’t drink Gin. Very informative and the tour lasted 90 minutes with three of us.

Emma was out tour host and was a natural. Very good and professional delivery of information with a pleasant level of humour. Highly recommended, particularly if you ask for Emma.

My first tour of a gin distillery and for only £10 you certainly cannot grumble! Emma our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging, considering she has only worked for the organisation for 5 weeks, you would’t have known. I have left the tour knowing more about the gin and how it is best served.

Benromach is a wonderful family owned distillery that produces some of the best whiskys the old fashioned way. We had a top notch tour with tasting. Chris was passionate and knowledgeable about the whisky and provided great advice on how to taste the whisky’s. We we’re coming straight from Macallan and the contrast was huge. Both were great but we definitely loved the simplicity and friendliness of Benromach. Highly recommended!

Fantastic tour around a smaller distillery who clearly have pride in their products. We only went around the Whisky side of their tour although understand they also do a gin tour. Ended with tasting some lovely whisky and came away with some great memories (plus a couple of bottles)
If you want to avoid the shiny big company tours then this is the one to try.

Very good value one hour tour of ‘Red Door’ gins at Benromach Distillery, Forres. Kelly was excellent tour guide. Clear and well explained and fun. All staff welcoming. Superb whisky in the shop afterwards. Five star value at only £10 a head for a one hour tour for a birthday experience.
