Benriach 30 Year Old pre-2018 Single Malt Whisky

The Benriach Distillery was founded in 1898 by John Duff, a serial entrepreneur within the whisky industry. Having pursued whisky adventures at home and abroad, John decided that the best place to build his new distillery would be on a small hill, or ‘Ben’ at the site of the old ‘Riach’ farm, in the north of Speyside. Benriach was born.
Although the rough-hewn walls of Benriach’s warehouses may seem unassuming, they are home to a rare breed of creative expertise in whisky distilling and eclectic cask maturation. It is where their ingenious and dedicated team spend their days crafting their award-winning Speyside single malts, tirelessly pushing the limits of flavour possibility.

Released in 2006, this was the first ever official release of a Benriach 30 Year Old, limited to only 3000 bottles. It is a marriage of bourbon and sherry casked Benriach.
