This latest release from the Speyside based distillery, which has been developed in collaboration with Milroy’s of Soho, has been created following a series of industry events involving bartenders from across the city. Back in June, a group of bartenders joined Benromach for a tasting session at Silverleaf Bar in the Pacific Hotel. After sampling three unique casks, they voted for their favourite whisky.
Benromach has also announced that it will donate over £2000 to Hospitality Action to support the industry after a particularly challenging two years.
Commenting on the news, Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager at Benromach, said: “This cask strength Benromach whisky has been specifically selected by London bartenders and will be sold exclusively through the city’s top bars and restaurants. It’s smoky, zesty and bold. It will be interesting to see how other bartenders interpret the dram and how they plan on serving it – whether that’s neat, over ice or in a creative cocktail.”
Limited to 201 bottles, Benromach – The Bartenders Edition, is now available exclusively from Milroy’s of Soho, for a RRP of £79.95. It will also be available by the dram in selected partner bars including, Swift Bars, Black Rock and Publiq.
