Lessons in the Dram

The Benriach distillery was founded in 1898 by John Duff. However, the distillery was operational for just two years before the ‘Pattison Crash’ in 1900 which resulted in decades of hardship for the entire whisky industry and numerous closures of many distilleries. While Benriach would not produce whisky again until 1965, the floor maltings remained in constant production, providing malted barley for their neighbour, 
Longmorn Distillery!

Description

The Original Ten encapsulates the signature smooth and multi-layered character of Benriach. Three cask matured for at least ten years in bourbon barrels, sherry casks and virgin oak, to create layers of luscious orchard fruit, sumptuous honeyed malt and toasted oak, all interwoven with a subtle trace of smoke. The perfect introduction to our signature style and richly layered Speyside Single Malt. 

"It's the classic, sweet, fruit-laden style of Benriach. Luscious orchard fruit on a base of beautiful vanilla cream and pastry, that for me is The Original Ten." - Benriach Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie
