Benrinnes Whisky

Benrinnes used a form of partial triple distillation its malt up until 2007, giving a creamy, rich character. While Diageo releases a couple of Benrinnes malts in their ranges, most bottlings are independent. It tends to be a big, flavourful malt, full of fruit and often with a smoky tinge. The creamy quality works well with a sherry influence, and helps develop subtle spices.

The current distillery, at the foot of Ben Rinnes mountain, is actually the third in the history of Benrinnes. The original distillery was a few miles from the current location, and only lasted three years thanks to the 'Great Flood' of 1829. The distillery as we now know it was built in 1835 by John Innes, albeit under the name Lyne of Ruthrie until it was sold in 1834 and the name was changed back by William Smith & Co. This version of the distillery saw a long life, including a devastating fire that forced a refurbishment and an upgrade to using electricity, before it was fully rebuilt and renovated in 1955 by then owners John Dewar & Sons.

 

While there are only a couple of official releases of Benrinnes, through Diageo's Flora & Fauna and Rare Malts ranges, the make was also used for a long time in Stronachie single malt whisky. This brand is named after, and supposedly inspired by, the old Stronachie distillery that was demolished in 1928.
