EXPLORE THE RANGE

CASK EDITION

In our warehouses lies one of the most eclectic selection of casks in Scotland. Our ‘sleeping beauties’, as we often call them, continue to be sourced from all over the world, enabling us to creatively explore the full flavour possibilities of Speyside single malt.

We reserve some of our most individual and unique cask types for the Cask Edition Collection. Released periodically, each Cask Edition is hand selected by Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie to celebrate a different facet of Benriach’s fruit laden character.

Our Cask Edition Programme

Overview of Cask Edition

  • Smoky Speyside

    Once a year, we distill Benriach peated spirit, a rarity for the Speyside tradition. We call this ‘Smoke Season’; a period when the rich aromas of peat smoke curl their way through the distillery. Our historical research indicates Benriach Distillery holds the oldest and rarest peated inventory in Speyside, dating back to 1975. Our peat comes from the Highlands of Scotland and imparts a sweet, smoky woodland peat profile to our whisky. This flavour is quite different to the more medicinal West Coast peat, most well known for its use on Islay.
  • Classic Speyside

    At Benriach, our bespoke distillation process creates our signature fruit-laden spirit. We run the stills nice and slow to create a longer ‘heart’ of the run. This captures the maximum levels of esters in the spirit, which develop as fruit notes in flavour. It is this fruit-forward distillation that works to capture layers of abundant orchard fruits and citrus zest in the heart of Benriach’s spirit.
  • Triple Distilled

    In the 1990s, Benriach began experimenting with small batches of triple distilled spirit. Once a year we continue this tradition. The third distillation further enhances Benriach’s fruit-laden character, creating an ultra-smooth spirit for this small batch style.

A Taste From The Past

MATURED In Eclectic Casks

At Benriach we believe we are the sum of our experiences - the product of the people, places and influences that shape us as we journey through life. It is true of us, and true of our whisky. Matured in our eclectic cask selection from around the world, our whisky benefits from the array of flavour and character those casks embue it with. The result is a richly multi-layered and distinctive Speyside single malt.
