BENROMACH (1898 - 1993) (1994
Forres, Banffshire. Eigendom van Gordon & Macphail, Elgin.
In 1898 gebouwd in opdracht van Duncan MacCallum van de Glen Nvis distilleerderij in Campbeltown en F.W. Brickman, een whiskymakelaar te Leith.
Het land waarop de distilleerderij werd gebouwd was het eigendom van Alexander Edward, eigenaar en medeeigenaar in een aantal distilleerderijen.
In Oktober 1899 gingen de blenders Pattison frauduleus bankroet en F.W. Brickman die ook was verbonden met deze firma ging bankroet en moest zich terugtrekken uit Benromach.
MacCallum was een korte tijd in staat Benromach in produktie te houden, maar moest toen toch opgeven.
Benromach bleef gesloten tot 1909.
In dat jaar werd Benromach weer opgestart door Duncan MacCallum met de naam Forres.
8 Maart 1911 wordt Harvey McNair & Co te Londen eigenaar.
Gedurende de eerste wereldoorlog is Benromach geopend.
In 1938 wordt Benromach gekocht door de excentrieke Joseph W. Hobbs, die een fortuin had gemaakt en verloren in Canada, samen met Hattim Attari, een financier te Londen.
Zij kochten met de steun van The National Distillers of America via de dochteronderneming van hun firma The Associated Scottish Distillers Ltd. (A.S.D), Train & Maclntyre, whisky distilleerderijen op in Schotland om na de verwachte beëindiging van de drooglegging in Amerika whisky te gaan exporterem naar dat land.
In 1938 was de A.S.D. eigenaar van Bruichladdich, Glenury Royal, Glenlochy, North Esk, (Old) Fettercairn, Benromach en Strathdee.
In 1953 wordt A.S.D. overgenomen door The Distillers Comapny Ltd. (D.C.L).
Licentiehouder wordt J.W. Hardie Ltd, blenders van The Antiquary.
In 1983 wordt Benromach gesloten en grotendeels ontmanteld, behalve de washbacks was er geen apparatuur meer in de distilleerderij aanwezig.
In April 1993 koopt Gordon & Macphail te Elgin Benromach.
Onder de leiding van Bob Murray, eerder manager van Glen Spey wordt de distilleerderij herbouwd.
Omdat merknaam en waterrechten niet het eigendom waren van United Distillers Ltd, duurde het tot 15 October 1998 voor de distilleerderij door H R H The Prince of Wales werd geopend.
Men moest een pijpleiding laten aanleggen van de distilleerderij, rondom Elgin heen, naar een onderaardse bron Chapelton Spring.
Men produceert drie verschillende single malt whiskies: één licht turfgerookt, ( 2 ppm), genaamd Glenmosset, bedoeld voor de eigen blends en blends van derden, één medium ( 8 ppm) turfgerookte single malt Benromach genaamd, en één heel zwaar turfgerookte single malt whisky ( 43 ppm) als een Islay malt, voor blending doeleinden en eventueel om als single malt whisky te worden verkocht.

Het koelwater komt van Sanquhar Loch.
Benromach heeft een Mash tun van 1,5 ton. De vier wash backs van Larikshout zijn elk 11000 liter, de wash still is groot 7500 liter, de spirit still 5000 liter.
Men zal jaarlijks tussen de 500.000 en 750.000 liter spirit produceren. De tegenwoordige manager (2000) is Keith Cruickshank. In Augustus 1999 werd een bezoekerscentrum geopend.
Op 29 September 2001 sterft George Masson Urquhart, hij wordt opgevolgd door zijn kinderen Ian, David en Michael. George Urquhart werd geboren in 1919.

Founded in 1898 near Forres, Benromach employed a mash-tun unusually made of wood. Often silent in its early years, it nonetheless remained active until 1983. In this century bottling of a full golden yellow 19 year old ripe, flowery aromas entice you into a big, almond-flavoured, creamy and round-bodied Speyside malt with a crisp, dry finish.

Benromach was built in 1898, the year of the great distillery boom. Alexander Edward of Sanquar, a well-known promoter of new distilleries granted a feu charter to the Benromach Distillery Company for a plot of his land, north of the railway junction in Forres. Charles Doig an archict from Elgin, was charged with the design of the new distillery. The local newspaper recounts the size of his tasks: 'Mr Doig's plan of taking cooling water out of the Mosset Burn at Forres for the new distillery and sending it back again unpolluted to the same spot, or nearly so, seems to involve some method of making water flow uphill. That he is attemting to do such a thing shows how far the principle of building distilleries on a plain has nwo been carried'.
Previously most distilleries were built at the bottom of a hill to save pumping water in the distillery process, but the introduction of modern machinery meant that this was no longer necessary. A more important consideration however was to be situated near a raiway station.
In 1898 Benromach was believed to be the first distillery to install direct oil-firing under the stills. Then Benromach was described as a striking distillery.
Now in 1998, having laid silent since 1983 Gordon & Macphail have re-equipped the distillery and distillation has restarted in this Benromach's Century year. The new stills are again heated by oil, this time generated in an oil boiler.



October 2005
Diageo has announced that its 2005 Annual Rare Malts Selection will be the last.
The collection will consist of four cask strenght single malts from closed distilleries; Glen Mhor 28 years old, Millburn 35 years old, Glendullan 26 years old and Linkwood 30 years old.
Dr. Nicholas Morgan, global malts marketing director commented: 'As the Special Releases are now well established, it makes less sence to continue selecting and promoting a parallel series of Rare Malts with his own separate indentity'.
In future, all premium and rare whiskies will be made available in the annual Special Releases series.
