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.

Would highly recommend the Benromach distillery on your whiskey tour. Benromach is one of the few remaining independent distilleries and one of just a few that still do their work by hand. You will learn what that means on the tour, but we found it very fascinating. It was our first whiskey tour and was not disappointed. It is a... More

We couldn't stay in the area on holiday without visiting at least one distillery and this one just stood out as looking different. And boy were we right. My wife didn't want to do the tour and was going to stay in the car park with our dogs but when the guys in the visitor centre overheard they welcomed the... More

Having counted up the distilleries I've visited this was the 13th, but by no means unlucky. Beautiful weather, lovely surroundings and more importantly fantastic whisky, and a guide who brought the process to life by giving the sort of insight we'd not experienced on tours elsewhere (for example the copper leakage into the 'head' spirit). A generous taster of the... More

This is one of the smaller distilleries, if not the smallest distillery, on Speyside. All of the processes in making whisky are on display here, but with the opportunity to get up close to the process. The whisky tasting afterwards was first rate. I was the only one amongst our 'group' that had elected to do this and the insights... More

This place was recommended by a local and tour was very interesting. Facility is well kept and tour was well organized and informative. Had sitting areas at end to sample different types of scotch. We needed up buying some to bring home. Wish we were allowed to take photos...at least with some casks or at some point of tour just... More

A pleasure from start to finish. We took the basic one hour tour, complete with a wee dram at the end. We could not have enjoyed it more, and it is brilliant to see a small, family company thriving and producing a world class product. Keep up the good work.

When we arrived at Benromach we were informed that it was "world Whiskey Day" and thus the tour and tasting was free! The tour was very interesting and the tour guide answered all our questions. Only one of us could do much tasting (one was the designated driver), it was interesting and fun.

I really enjoyed our tour - I am not a whiskey drinker personally but still found it interesting. The staff were great and very accommodating. My only suggestion would be - can we try the fudge next time? It'd be great for those who are driving!! Thanks to the team for an insightful trip.
