Jessica, who has lived in Forres for the past four years and who is originally from Colchester, studied Brewing and Distilling at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

Commenting on the news, Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: “Jessica’s appointment is a significant step forward and opens another new chapter in Benromach history. She joins us with considerable knowledge and expertise and will be an invaluable member of the team.”

He went onto say: “Over the last 18 months, we’ve enjoyed considerable growth and, as the popularity of our award-winning whisky continues to grow, we have significantly expanded production to meet the international appetite for our whiskies. Ours is an industry that requires carefully forward planning and patience so the spirit that Jessica lays down today will not be bottled and tasted by our consumers for at least ten years or more.”

Jessica said she was attracted to the role, having long admired the distillery’s commitment to the handcrafted techniques and time-honoured production methods that have been handed down through the generations.
