IN NORTH SPEYSIDE

THE BENRIACH DISTILLERY

A Speyside single malt as intriguing as Benriach doesn’t come to bear without a unique whisky making heritage.

In 1898 our founder John Duff chose to open his new distillery on the site of the old Riach Farm. Ruggedly beautiful, the Benriach Distillery draws its water from the mineral-rich aquifer deep beneath the grounds.

Benriach is a hidden Speyside gem distilling in three distinct styles - classic unpeated, Highland peated and triple distilled - and crafting layers of diverse flavour with our eclectic range of cask types from around the world.

To discover and enjoy Benriach come and visit us at our home in Speyside.
