Overview
More
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.

Drove to this tour due to good reviews and location to where we were staying. Even as someone who isn’t a whisky fanatic I enjoyed the informative tour. And would definitely recommend to anyone in the area. You even get a dram at the end!...More

We stopped through to do the Contrast Tour and had a wonderful time. The tour ran about 75 minutes including the four dram tasting. The staff was attentive and well informed, and the overall experience was lovely.

This wasn't my first distillery tour but it was my best, made enjoyable by an entertaining tour guide. Because it is such a small distillery you really get a feel for the skill and expertise required in this industry

We stumbled upon Benromach not knowing their whiskies. They were quickly accommodating (we had no booking) and set us up with a friendly connoisseur. The 10 year old is one of the best in its class and the organic whisky is very nice as well....More

We enjoy visiting smaller distilleries as they tend to be a bit more intimate and interesting, as a lot of distillation is still done by only a handful of people. We visited Benromach while travelling through Forres and were the only people on the tour...More
