Benromach launches ‘rare’ 35-year-old whisky

2nd February, 2016 by Amy Hopkins

The Benromach Distillery Company has released one of its “rarest expressions to date”, a 35-year-old whisky crafted from liquid that predates the distillery’s restoration.

Benromach 35 Years Old, said to have a flavour of cinnamon, beeswax polish, steward pear and charred oak, is bottled in a bespoke decanter, itself contained in a wooden presentation box.

The expression is made using 35-year-old whisky distilled at Speyside-based Bendromach before the distillery was brought back into production by Gordon & MacPhail in 2003.

“Benromach 35 Years Old is a very special whisky for everyone at the distillery, as very few casks of Benromach remain from this time period,” said Benromach Distillery manager Keith Cruickshank.

“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.”

Benromach 35 Years Old is available to purchase at specialist whisky retailers at an RRP of £425 in the UK, prices may vary in international markets.

Last month Gordon & MacPhail launched a limited edition Glen Grant 1950 expression exclusively for corporate collector Wealth Solutions.
