BACKGROUND TO BENRINNES
Benrinnes was founded in 1826. Famed chronicler Alfred Barnard said of its location that ‘no more weird or desolate a place could have been chosen’. `But, of course, we like the weird. That’s what makes us enjoy single cask whisky, it’s unique. The majority of ‘the Ben’ ends up in blends, particularly for Johnnie Walker. It’s really hard to find single malts from Benrinnes. This is a rare treat. Certainly a whisky worth trying as a single malt, this Benrinnes is really well-rounded and has great nutty and grape notes.

About our Bottles
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.
