The distillery, which was previously under the ownership of Chivas Brothers, was acquired by 3 entrepreneurs, led by Scotch Whisky industry veteran Billy Walker. The BenRiach Distillery Company was then born. Now BenRiach, located in the 'Heart of Speyside' just south of Elgin, is once again producing its very special Single Malt Whiskies as an independent distiller. Benriach is a terrific malt from a distillery that has really shot up after years of Seagram neglect. This delicious easy-drinking 16yo is a complex all-rounder - recommended. A Gold Medal winner at the 2006 International Wine and Spirits Competition, this 16 year old BenRiach was also a 2006 Silver Medal winner at the International Spirits Challenge.
