Rare 35YO Benromach whisky released

The Benromach Distillery Company has revealed one of its rarest expressions to date, Benromach 35 Years Old, a whisky crafted at the distillery before the Urquhart family, owners of Gordon & MacPhail, revived it in 1998.

The bespoke decanter style bottle is encased within a wooden presentation box, reflecting the various elements which have gone into making the whisky; the copper stills, the dark, grained wood of the original washbacks, and the white of the limewashed distillery walls.

This rare whisky exudes the heritage of the Speyside distillery. Created under the watchful eye of Donald MacDonald, former distillery manager, the casks this whisky was matured in have long been a part of the Benromach history. Willie McArthur, former malt man and warehouseman, was one of the workers responsible for protecting the casks remaining in the bonded warehouses.  

Benromach distillery manager Keith Cruickshank says: “Benromach 35 Years Old is a very special whisky for everyone at the distillery, as very few casks of Benromach remain from this time period.

“Benromach today is created respecting the traditional working practices of yesteryear and is lovingly handcrafted by sight, by sound, and by touch, using the finest natural ingredients.

“The 35 Years Old is the perfect dram to toast the past, present and future of Benromach.”

Benromach 35 Years Old (43% ABV) is available to purchase at specialist whisky retailers with an RRP in the UK of £425. Prices may vary in international markets due to duty and import taxes.
