BenRiach unveils TR-exclusive 10-year-old whisky
Speyside distillery BenRiach has launched a 10-year-old triple-distilled single malt exclusively for the global travel retail market.
BenRiach Triple Distilled Aged 10 Years will join the global travel retail range, which includes the classic and peated BenRiach Quarter Casks.
The expression has been matured for at least 10 years in first-fill American Bourbon barrels and first-fill Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks.
It has “perfectly balanced” notes of vanilla and spice from the Bourbon barrels, while the Pedro Ximenez adds “complexity and richness” to the expression.
Bottled at 43% abv, the expression made its debut at the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival (3-7 May).
“Two decades ago the BenRiach distillery team started to experiment with small batches of triple-distilled whisky, even when most Single Malt Scotch whiskies are distilled just twice,” said master blender Rachel Barrie.
“We continue to boldly approach the art of distillation and cask maturation, inspired by the adventurous spirit of our distillery founder.
“I have the wonderful task of bringing out this experimental nature through some of the most interesting casks in Speyside. For the unconventional whisky lovers and explorers, BenRiach Triple Distilled is a chance to enjoy an innovative style of Speyside single malt Scotch not once or twice, but triple-distilled.”
BenRiach Triple Distilled Aged 10 Years is available in selected airports worldwide from May.
