The Benromach Distillery Company Ltd. has revealed one of its rarest expressions to date, Benromach 35 Years Old, an exclusive whisky that was crafted at the distillery before the Urquhart family, owners of leading whisky specialist Gordon & MacPhail, revived it in 1998.
Handcrafted using the finest natural ingredients at the Forres distillery, Benromach 35 Years Old is an exceptional whisky with an authentic heritage and an original tale or two, having been laid down to mature in the 1980’s.
Golden amber in colour, Benromach 35 Years Old (ABV 43%) is a satisfying Speyside whisky, with hints of cinnamon and beeswax polish, stewed pear and a delicate charred Oak edge to be enjoyed by whisky enthusiasts of Asia and beyond.
The bespoke decanter style bottle protecting the whisky is encased within a wooden presentation box, reflecting the various elements which have gone into making the whisky; the copper stills, the dark grained wood of the original washbacks, and the white of the limewashed distillery walls.
This rare whisky, dating back to a time before Benromach was restored in the 1990s, exudes the story of tradition, quality and passion at the Speyside distillery. Created under the watchful eye of Donald MacDonald, former Distillery Manager, the casks that the whisky was matured in have long been a part of the Benromach history. Willie McArthur, former malt man and warehouseman, was one of the workers responsible for protecting the precious casks remaining in the bonded warehouses.

Benromach Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank explains: “Benromach 35 Years Old is a very special whisky for everyone at the distillery, as very few casks of Benromach remain from this period of time.”
“Benromach today is created respecting the traditional working practices of yesteryear and is lovingly handcrafted by sight, by sound, and by touch, using the finest natural ingredients.”
“The 35 Years Old is the perfect dram to toast the past, present and future of Benromach.”
