Benriach distillery was founded in 1898 in the north of Speyside. The founder and whiskey heir John Duff was an important milestone in the development of Benriach whiskey. The distillery is located on the site of the old Riach farm. Water is drawn from a mineral-rich aquifer deep beneath the distillery. The barrels are filled with three different types of spirit: classic, peated or triple distilled. This whisky belongs to the Cask Edition of Benriach. All premium bottlings of this collection were created by master blender Dr. Rachel Barrie. Maturation takes place for 27 years in Pedro Ximénez Puncheons.
