Located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres lies Benromach Distillery. From a small and almost lost distillery emerged a single malt withdistinctive qualities reflecting its hand made credentials as well as encapsulating the self-reliance, sophistication and modern values of Scotland today.Established in 1898, the distillery experienced many closures and changes in ownership prior to 1993, when malt whisky specialists, Gordon & MacPhail rescued it. Following an extensive reinstallation project, embracing the distillery's original character, Benromach was officially re-opened by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1998.Just three experienced distillers create 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 Distillery for many years.

Nice staff at this little distillery. Tour took about one hour, unfortunately there is no photography allowed inside the building. You get a wee dram after the tour and have the option to taste some more of their whisky.

So glad we dropped in and had a tour, well worth it. A wonderful tour, a great guide with great knowledge and such a brilliant building. So glad they have restored it and whisky is now flowing from this distillery. Oh, the whisky ain't bad...More

A wonderful cottage distillery exhibiting the true craft of whisky making - not the mechanical style which many of the large distilleries have become. Tour was very informative and friendly. We truly felt welcomed. And to top it off the product is top notch.

Benromach is a small family run Distillery and is certainly worth a visit. Friendly welcome and the tour by Alec was fun and very interesting. My husband's favourite bit-the tasting of course and loved each and every one! Probably worth pre booking during holiday times...More

Benromach Distillery is very small and intimate. After a decade or so shut in the 1980s and 1990s it had to be refurbished and then completely re-equipped with distillery kit. In the late 1990s therefore the current management started off with very much a blank...More
