Benromach Distillery sits on the outskirts of the Royal Burgh and ancient market town of Forres. Here whisky was first made in the final year of the 19th Century. This imposing distillery lay silent and empty for a number of years. Now it has been transformed and revived by Gordon & MacPhail. See the mash tun, the burnished copper stills and the spirit safe where the distiller's craft creates the unique qualities of the single malt. Learn the meaning of the mystical names - so much part of the heritage of Scotch Whisky.
