Benrinnes

Built on the shoulder of its mountain namesake 700 feet above sea level, Benrinnes was first founded sometime in the 1820s, but this original building was washed away in the great flood of 1829. Rebuilt for what is hopefully the last time in the 1950s, Benrinnes has been adding the sherry-like qualities to blends for over half a century. Over two centuries this distillery has faced it all. But flood, a rather destructive fire, a fair share of financial turmoil, and two world wars have done nothing to impair the rounded, mellow, almost sultry tones of Benrinnes Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Lightly smoky and woody, there’s something that might be mistaken for peat smoke in Benrinnes, but that’s hidden beneath layers of full sweetness, rum and chocolate notes, and of course a sherried aftertaste.
