The Benromach Distillery has announced the launch of a new limited edition single malt whisky expression, which will be available exclusively from its recently refurbished visitors centre.

Benromach Distillery Exclusive Cask 757 (55.7% ABV) was distilled in 2000, and is said to deliver aromas of sweet vanilla, tropical fruit, cocoa powder and peat smoke. Followed by flavours of banana, mango, passionfruit and bonfire embers.

Benromach's recently refurbished Visitors Centre now features three tasting rooms

Benromach's first Distillery Exclusive was launched to coincide with the 2016 Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival in April. Only 240 bottles of the whisky were available and it sold out within seven weeks.

With visitor numbers continuing to rise after the distillery’s recent refurbishment, the team at Benromach are advising customers not to wait too long before picking up a bottle of their latest Distillery Exclusive, which is limited to just 238 bottles.

The growth of the brand has led to expansion at the distillery, including new warehouses and a larger team. The four-star visitor centre has recently upgraded its facilities. There are now three new tasting rooms for visitors to experience, while Benromach House - the old distillery manager’s hous, has also been renovated to hold a new tasting room.

Commenting on the new Distillery Exclusive, Keith Cruickshank, said: “The first Benromach Distillery Exclusive, a first fill bourbon barrel, has been thoroughly enjoyed by whisky lovers across the world. We’re sure the new Distillery Exclusive will be a similar success and the new facilities at the distillery certainly provide a wonderful setting for us to introduce this whisky, and the other products in our range. It’s a very busy and exciting time for us all here at Benromach Distillery.”

Benromach Distillery, based on the outskirts of Forres, was revived by the Urquhart family of Gordon & MacPhail and re-opened in 1998. Since then its handcrafted whisky has grown in popularity around the world with whisky fans keen to enjoy a classic Speyside malt that draws its influence from the Speyside whiskies of the pre 1960s. 

Benromach Distillery Exclusive Cask 757, is available exclusively from the distillery for a RRP of £90.00.
