Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Distinctive rich Belgian milk chocolate aromas dominate the bouquet, which is underpinned by violet, lilac and other bright purple notes.

|Our distillery – Speyside’s smallest - is located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres, in north-east Scotland. Just two experienced distillers passionately hand-craft 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 for many years. Only when it has matured to our highest quality standards do we bottle it and proudly label it – Benromach Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky. We adopt a very simple approach to creating our Single Malts - each part of the art of whisky making impacts on the final product. Like a jigsaw, each part of the whisky making process contributes to the final quality product. Benromach Distillery is owned a managed by Gordon & MacPhail - a family business for over 100 years.|
