Benromach launches triple-distilled whisky

Sep 4, 2017by Amy Hopkins

Single malt Speyside distillery Benromach has expanded its portfolio with the release of a limited edition triple-distilled expression.

The 2009 vintage Benromach Triple Distilled has been distilled once in a wash still and then twice in a spirit still before being matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels. Just 1,300 bottles of the 50% abv whisky will be available at an RRP of £44.99 across the UK and Europe. “The launch of our Benromach Triple Distilled single malt marks an exciting time for us here at the distillery as we continue to expand our family of Speyside single malt whiskies,” said distillery manager Keith Cruickshank. “This new whisky is distilled in a wash still once and twice in a spirit still, before it is matured in first-fill Bourbon barrels, resulting in its light, fruity character with a fantastic delicate smokiness.” The Benromach distillery is owned and run by Gordon & MacPhail, which purchased the site in 1993. In April this year, Benromach launched a 1975 vintage single malt Scotch costing £1,250.
