BENRIACH / BEN RIACH(1894 - 1903) (1965 - 2002) (2005

Longmorn, Elgin, Morayshire. Licentiehouder: The Longmorn - Glenlivet Distillery Ltd. On-derdeel van The Chivas and Glenlivet Group. Eigendom van Seagram.
Gesticht in 1894 - 1895 door John Duff, die een jaar eerder Longmorn had gebouwd. Het was het bijna hoogtepunt van de whisky-hausse, die er heerste.
Reden voor de bouw hier van de distilleerderij was de aanwezigheid van veel en goed water afkomstig van de Mannoch Hill en de aanwezigheid van turf.
De markt stortte in 1899 in, ingeluid met de teloorgang van de gebroeders Pattsion, whis-kyhandelaren en blenders te Leith, die frauduleus bankroet gingen.
Longmorn bleef in produktie, maar Ben Riach ging tijdelijk dicht, en bleef dit vijf en zestig jaar!
In 1965 werd Ben Riach weer opgestart.
Gedurende die jaren was alleen de mouterij in gebruik ten behoeve van Longmorn.
Ben Riach heeft nog steeds een vloermouterij, maar de kapaciteit van 700 ton per jaar is niet toereikend om ook Longmorn te kunnen beleveren.
De ketels van Ben Riach zijn kleiner dan die van Longmorn en de whisky is lichter dan die van Longmorn.
In de jaren zeventig werden er vier ketels bijgebouwd, waardoor het aantal ketels op acht kwam, vier Wash stills van elk 15000 liter en vier Spirit stills van elk 9500 liter.
De ketels worden indirekt met stoom verhit en de kapaciteit is drie miljoen liter spirit per jaar.
De Mash tun is 6,08 ton, de acht Wash backs hebben een inhoud van elk 30.000 liter.
In 1898 werden Ben Riach en Longmorn overgenomen door James Grant die later werd opgevolgd door zijn zoon's P.J.C. Grant en R.L. Grant.
De Grants van Ben Riach en Longmorn en die van Glen Grant werden in 1970 verenigd toen ze met de whiskyblenders Hill Thomson & Co, Ltd te Edinburgh, en The Glenlivet & Glen Grant Distilleries Limited, samen gingen.
De laatsten waren al in 1953 samen gegaan.
In 1978 werd deze groep overgenomen door The Seagram Co, Limited.
Op 18 December 2000 wordt Seagram voor 8,15 miljard dollar overgenomen door Diageo en Pernod Ricard. Diageo vetaalt 5 miljard (= 61 %) en Pernod Ricard de rest.
Pernod Ricard krijgt de Schotse whiskymerken en distilleerderijen in zijn bezit.
Ben Riach werd in in 1999 gesloten.
Ben Riach werd van de Chivas Groep overgenomen voor £ 5,4 miljoen door de Benriach Distillery Company Ltd, waarin Geoff Bell en Wayne Kiefwetter, Zuid - Afrikaanse zakenmensen, en Billy Walker, ex Allied Distillers, Ex Inver House, ex Chivas en ex Burnt Stewart medewerker het voor het zeggen hebben.
Het is de bedoeling dat er September 2004 een 12 jaar oude, 16 en 20 jaar oude maltwhiskies worden uitgebracht.,
Ook komt er een peaty whisky uit, gedistilleerd tussen 1993 en 1996.
Alan McConnochie afkomstig van Tobermory wordt de distilleerderij manager.

1894 John Duf f & Co sticht Ben Riach, de ernaast gelegen Longmorn is al in
zijn bezit
1899 John Duff raakt in financiële moeilijkheden, moet Ben Riach als onderpand
aan de bank geven, die Ben Riach verkoopt aan
Longmorn Distilleries Co.
1903 Ben Riach gaat in de mottenballen
De mouterij blijft in produktie t.b.v. Longmorn
1965 Ben Riach is het eigendom van The Glenlivet Distilleires Ltd Ben Riach
wordt vernieuwd en weer opgestart
1978 Seagram wordt de eigenaar en Ben Riach wordt onderdeel van
Chivas Brothers.
1983 Seagram start de produktie van een peated malt
1985 Er worden twee ketels bijgebouwd, er zijn nu vier ketels
1994 De eerste, een 10 jaar oude botteling wordt uitgebracht
1999 De mouterij wordt gesloten
2001 Pernod Ricard neemt Chivas Brothers over
2002 Ben Riach gaat in October in de mottenballen
2004 Intra Trading uit Zuid Afrika neemt samen met Billy Walker, eerder manager
bij Burn Stewart, Ben Riach over voor £ 5.4 miljoen
In dit bedrag zijn ook 5000 vaten gelagerde whisky in de lij ftijd van
3 tot 34 jaar oud
Augustus 2007
Ben Riach brengt drie nieuwe expressies uit: allen gestookt van zwaar geturfrookte gerst.
Alle drie gelagerd in Bourbon-vaten, en dan nagerijpt in respectievelijk Pedro Ximinez Sherry Butts (Heredotus Fumosus), Aged Tawny Port Hogsheads (Importanticus Fumosus) en Jamaican Dark Rum Barrels (Arumaticus Fumosus).
De whisky is niet koud gefilterd, niet gekleurd, en gebotteld op 46 %

Ongeveer 4 jaar nadat Billy Walker met zijn twee Zuid - Afrikaanse compagnons Geoff Bell
en Wayne Kiesewetter neemt dit drietal Glendronach nu over (September 2008) van Pernod
Ricard

Van Glendronach wordt nu alleen een 12- en een 33 jaar oude whisky uitgebracht

De voorraad van Glendronach zou van heel hoge kwaliteit zijn, vooral whiskies gelagerd in
sherry vaten, alleen in de laatste jaren zijn er veel Bourbon vaten gebruikt

November 2009


Benriach made pre-tax losses of 1.88 000.000 Pounds in 2008, the profit in 2007 was
1.95 000.000 Pounds

The 2008 figures were severely impacted by a 5.35.000.000 Pounds impairment charge
against goodwill at Glendronach distillery

Glendronach was bought from Chivas Brothers (owners Pernod Ricard) in 2008 for
30.000.000 Pounds

Also in November the visitor centre and offices at Glendronach flooded for the 2e time.

Benriach's 2008 accounts showed turnover of 12.08.000.000- against 8.13.000.000 Pounds
a year earlier.

The firm's net debt at the end of last year was 15.76.000.000- and at the end of 2007 3.4.000.000 Pounds.

"Horizons" - the 12 years old, triple distilled BenRiach is one of the most unique whiskies
to be released by The BenRiach Distillery Company. Originally matured in ex - bourbon
barrels, the triple distilled BenRiach has been allowed to finish in Oloroso Sherry casks,
and has derived a number of flavours and aromas specific to the sherry casks.

Located in the north - east region of Morayshire, the Heartland of Malt Scotch Whisky,
BenRiach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in
1898, BenRiach is one of the few distilleries with its own on - site floor malting, and draws
Its water from the Burnside Springs.

"Horizons" the 12 years old, triple distilled BenRiach is one of the most unique whiskies to
be released by The BenRiach Distillery Company. Traditionally most single malt Scotch whiskies are distilled twice, however during the late '90s BenRiach experimented with some
limited production runs of triple distilled whisky, nd we have allowed the whisky to mature for a minimum of 12 years before giving you the opportunity to sample the fruits of our la-
bour.

Triple distillation means that the raw spirit produced comes off the still at a higher alcohol
strength, and the whisky is more fruity and floral than a traditional double distilled Ben -
Riach - quite different in character and certainly a rarity amongst single malt whiskies.

Originally matured in ex - bourbon barrels, the triple distilled BenRiach has been allowed
to finish in Oloroso Sherry casks, and has derived a number of flavours and aromas specific

Located in the north - east region of Morayshire, the Heartland of Malt Scotch Whisky,
Benriach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in
1898 , Benriach is one of the few distilleries with its own on - site floor malting, and
draws its water from the Burnside Springs.

The Spey Valley is home to many of Scotland's great whiskies, but The Benriach has its
own uniqueness, which is borne from the particular methods and skills of the Benriach
men who craft the whisky, the ingredients they use, the distinctive copper stills and the
high quality oak casks selected for maturation.

Once distilled, the whisky is filled to casks and allowed to mature on - site in our traditional,
stone - walled, earthen - floored "dunnage warehouses which provide the perfect
conditions in which to age whisky.

Within these warehouses we store an impressive inventory of over 20.000 casks, some
of which date as far back as 1966, and it is from this rich inventory of maturing whiskies
that our Master Distiller has carefully selected the handful of casks from which he has
drawn the whisky to create this exceptional bottling.

Produced in the traditional style, this whisky is non chill filtered, and is bottled at 50 %

Tuesday 07 July 2015

WHISKY entrepreneur Billy Walker yesterday hinted at further acquisitions for the BenRiach distillery business he heads after it announced record results and revealed plans to invest more than £25 million.
BenRiach, which also owns the GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh single malt whisky brands, said pre-tax profits rose by 24 per cent to £11.1 million last year on the back on a 17.6 per cent rise in turnover to £41.5m.
Taiwan's consumers have a taste for premium brands so it'a fit
Billy Walker
Growth in sales across markets such as Taiwan, Germany, Africa and the US helped drive the strong performance of the Newbridge business.
>
The expansion of the BenRiach business since Walker and his two South African business partners purchased it a decade ago has been accelerated through acquisitions of the GlenDronach distillery in 2008 and the Glenglassaugh distillery in 2013, and Walker yesterday said that further deals were possible.
"We're open-minded and if something came up adding value and balance to the business, we would certainly consider it," he said.
Walker, the firm's managing director, said it plans to invest about £25m over the next two years to take advantage of the significant opportunities it sees for further growth.
"We continue to make significant strides in brand development where we are concentrating our efforts on the top end of market.
"We are an independent, boutique business and we see each distillery as having 'Grand Cru' provenance."
Walker said the investment plans were being supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, and he described the bank's support in recent years as "magnificent".
Export markets will be a key focus for the company's growth plans.
Sales director Alistair Walker said the last 12 months had seen unprecedented demand for high-end brands such as those produced by BenRiach.
"We have a wide customer base and currently ship to over forty countries but there is still potential for growth in the likes of Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea and much of Africa and South America. So I believe the future for all our brands is tremendously exciting."
>
Taiwan was described as a "huge" market for the company, and Walker said: "It's part of the overall spirits boom in Asia and its consumers have a taste for premium brands so it's a great fit with our growth strategy."
Although there was growth across the company's brands in 2014, Walker said the Glenglassaugh range in particular had significantly outperformed against the company's forecasts.
"Another recent high point was the launch of our BenRiach ten years old single malt in 2015, the first core range expression to be produced predominantly from whisky distilled under The BenRiach Distillery Company's stewardship."
Billy Walker, a master blender, and his two South African partners Geoff Bell and Wayne Kieswetter, purchased BenRiach in 2004.
When the company posted its first full year's figures in 2005, turnover was £4.62m, pre-tax profit was £241,716 and the company employed just 12 people. The firm currently employs 120 people across its four sites.
The record profits cap a highly successful year for the Newbridge-headquartered group, which was recently highlighted by the London Stock Exchange among a range of companies to inspire Britain

Brown-Forman buys BenRiach for £285m
Home » News » Spirits news » Whisky news
27 April, 2016
By Christian Davis
The Brown-Forman Corporation has announced that it has bought the BenRiach Distillery Company
Limited for approximately £285 million.
When completed, the purchase will bring three single malt scotch whisky brands into Brown-Forman’s
growing whiskey portfolio: The GlenDronach, BenRiach, and Glenglassaugh.
The company says the purchase will include brand trademarks, three malt distilleries, a bottling plant, and
the company’s headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland. The BenRiach Distillery Company, which has a
workforce of 165 employees including 55 seasonal and casual workers, will operate as a subsidiary of
Brown-Forman.
Brown-Forman CEO Paul Varga said: “The acquisition of these super premium brands will allow Brown-
Forman to re-enter one of our industry’s most exciting and consistent growth segments, single malt scotch
whisky. The Glendronach, BenRiach, and Glenglassaugh single malt brands are rich in history and we
believe they will continue to prosper and grow in our hands.”
Varga noted that Brown-Forman previously was a minority shareholder of Glenmorangie plc and marketed
Glenmorangie in the US and Canada from 1992 to 2005 and in continental Europe and certain Asian
markets from 2000 to 2005. Brown-Forman sold its part of Glenmorangie’s sale to Moet Hennessy in 2005.
Billy Walker, managing director of The BenRiach Distillery Company Limited said: “Our team have
energised these distilleries and engaged creatively and successfully with the premium end of the market.
We are very confident that Brown-Forman will take The GlenDronach, BenRiach, and Glenglassaugh
brands to the next level and fulfill their full potential, and prove to be worthy custodians of these historic
distilleries.”
The GlenDronach distillery, located in the hills of the Scottish Highlands, was founded in 1826.
GlenDronach produces a range of ultra-premium single malt whiskies and is most noted for its sherried
whiskies.
Located in the heart of Speyside, The BenRiach distillery began making malt whisky in 1898 and is known
for experimenting with wood finishes producing whisky from both non-peated and peated malted barley.
The Glenglassaugh distillery, founded in 1875, is located on the coast
