The Benromach Distillery Company has extended its Wood Finish range with the launch of a new variant finished in wine barrels from the Rhône region of France.


Benromach has grown its Wood Finish range

Benromach Hermitage 2007 has been matured in Bourbon barrels for six years, before being transferred to oak casks that once held wine from the Hermitage Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée, in the northern Rhône region of France, where it was finished for a further 31 months.

The latest whisky follows the limited edition Wood Finish expressions Hermitage 2005, Château Cissac 2006 and Sassicaia 2007.

Bottled at 45% abv, it is said to have a flavour of dark cherry, orange and milk chocolate with a smoky edge.

“At Benromach we work with some of the world’s most exclusive wineries to carefully select casks for finishing,” said Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery manager. “The Benromach Hermitage 2007 is the latest release from our Wood Finishes range, which gives our customers the opportunity to experience classic Benromach with a twist.

“This Benromach dram is a delicious offering for whisky aficionados and those looking to try something new.”

Benromach Hermitage 2007 is now available to purchase from specialist whisky retailers at an RRP of £40.25.
