Where: Elgin

About: Distillery founder, John Duff, travelled home and abroad in pursuit of whisky adventures, before building the BenRiach distillery in 1898. It is in his adventurous spirit that BenRiach boldly approaches the art of distillation and cask maturation, pushing the boundaries of malt alchemy like no other. An unconventional Speyside whisky distiller, BenRiach distills three malt whisky styles – unpeated, peated and triple distilled – and holds some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. The distillery is also one of the two remaining distilleries in Speyside to distill whisky using malted barley from its own on-site floor maltings, a time honoured craft that is celebrated for one month each year.
