Located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres lies Benromach Distillery. 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 three 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.

Small family run distillery very friendly with interesting history. They have a good range of whisky with a softer tone than some Highland types. Staff were laid back and welcoming.

My husband and I visited about half a dozen distilleries while on vacation in Scotland, and the tour and experience at Benromach was our favorite. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable and funny. The place is run by a family that really cares about their craft and their visitors.

Our visit to Benromach was the first of nine or 10 distillery tours we took in the space of about a week. Plus, it was the only Speyside distillery we visits. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great visit. Definitely recommended.

We had such a great time at the tour and tasting at this distillery! We took the essential tour, which included a short film on the history of the distillery and then a tour of the distillery itself. It was quite fascinating and included ample time to ask questions. The tour ended with a tasting of four different Benromach whiskies,... More

As regular (twice yearly) visitors, we like the recent upgrading to car park and general environment. We haven't done the tour, but always find the shop well stocked. If anything, the hovering staff can get a bit TOO intrusive if all you want to do is have a leisurely look round. A simple "would you like any help?" would suffice.... More
