Built almost 700 feet up the slopes of Ben Rinnes, from which it takes its name, this distillery is believed to have been founded in 1835 although evidence exists of distilling on this site in 1826. It was largely rebuilt and modernized in the 1950's. Most of its production is distilled three times rather than the more usual twice, and almost all is used in United Distillers' blends. The single malt is stille relatively rare, only becoming available in the official bottlings in the Distillery (Flora and Fauna) Malt series early in the 1990's.
