Benromach was designed by Elgin architect Charles Doig and has high pitched gables and narrow mullioned windows in the Scots vernacular style of the 17th century.
It was founded in 1898 by the Benromach Distillery Company and was subsequently sold to Associated Scottish Distilleries Ltd. in 1937, who sold it to DCL in 1953. It was managed by SMD and licensed to J & W Hardie.
The stillhouse was rebuilt in 1966 and the mash house was rebuilt and the tunroom modernised in 1974. Its two stills ceased production in 1983.
