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 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.
