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 two 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. « less

We dropped in on this distillery on a wet saturday while we were travelling around in the area. Of course while in Scotland you have to visit at LEAST one distillery, and we decided to go to a small one to see how they did things. There were only the two of us on the tour and we were walked...

This was a great experience. Our guide, Finn, gave us just the right amount of information and was able to answer all our questions. This is a small family business, producing a relatively small quantity of whisky. We also did the "bottle your own whisky" experience, a lovely experience with a fantastic whisky, very well presented. They said they will... More

You have to be out of your mind, not to visit a distillery (or two) while in Scotland, is my opinion. So, ... on our way, - there are signs, you do not have to follow, but ... Benromach! Nice, professional, good beyond laws, but we were to bike on.

A nice little distillery to visit, tours are limited at weekends; but the staff are very accommodating and enthusiastic. They have many stories and anecdotes to share. Would definitely go back for a more extensive tasting tour.

Our tour guide Jim was very friendly and knowledgable, taking the group of 6 through the different areas of the working distillery. This is the first time I've seen whiskey actually flowing through the wine safe, with one of the distillers on hand. At the end, purchasing a bottle, I got half my £6 back as discount. A bargain after... More

This is the smallest distillery we have visited, but no less fascinating than it's larger counterparts. We did the "welcome" tour which cost £6 each. There were 4 of us in the tour, so it really felt more personal than other tours we have been on. There was a DVD to watch first which explained the history of the distillery,... More

I've done several distillery tours, but the tour of Benromach was definitely the the most informative and interesting. It probably helped that there were only 2 people in the tour group, but I don't think it would have made too much difference - it's such a small distillery that I think you'd get the personal touch regardless.
