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.

This is a small distillery where you get an authentic tour- I went on the Contrast tour costing £15 with a small group of 5 other people. The guide Robert was very knowledgeable and amiable- coping well with a couple of the group who had lots of questions! We bumped into the Distillery Manger Keith as we went around. The... More

This is the first distillery tour we tried before moving onto the larger distilleries in the area. It definitely set the bar high by providing an engaging and informative intimate tour of the distillery followed by a great whiskey tasting experience (including small bottles for those who are driving to take their drams away with them to enjoy in the...

We stopped at a lot of distilleries. did one tour and then tried to just get tastings. Some only do after a tour and some sell small bottles. This was a four dram tasting and was nice.

Brilliant tour. Had the basic tour which lasted an hour. Watched a short film about the history of the distillery first then we were taken around the distillery. It was very informative and George the tour guide was very good. We had a dram at the end which was very tasty. Thanks

After touring a few of the large "chain" distilleries this was a breath of fresh air (that smells wonderful). This is a nice small distillery that is well worth a visit.

This is a small distillery in the Highlands of Scotland. We enjoyed our visit, learning how scotch was made. The tasting after was special. We visited 3 distilleries and this had the best tasting scotch of them all.

Lovely little distillery in the industrial centre of Forres. Visitor centre is tidy and purposeful. The distillery tour is one of the better ones I have done. Although it covers the process like all the others, it does it in a firm and informative way, without overloading information on visitors and some quick sharp jokes which went down well. The...
