From the book 'The Scottish Collection' Classic Malts by Carol P. Shaw :
Tasting notes : A medium bodied, fruity whisky with sweetish overtones and a gently malty finish. A new bottling has been available from the distillery since 1994. Taste rating = 4
Originally built in 1898, Benriach was closed in 1990, after recession hit the previously booming whisky industry. It was refitted and reopened in 1965, although not completely modernized, still retaining its hand turned malting floor. The company is owned by Segram, and most of its produce goes into their blends.
Although the distillery now produces its own, official bottling, this is still not an easy whisky ot come across.
From the Whisky pilot by Uniqum Systems :
Built in 1898, Benriach is situated in Speyside close to the River Lossie. About that time the whisky market suddenly went into recession. It was therefore closed in 1900 and did not open again until 1965, when it was rebuilt by The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. It has been owned by The Seagram Company of Canada since 1977 and features four stills and floor malting, which is not that common.
Previously only available from independent bottlers, Seagram introduced their own bottling in 1994. The sister distillery to the much prized Longmorn next door, both distilleries were built within four years of each other in the boom years of the 1890's. Like Longmorn, it is an important constituent of the flagship Seagram blend, Chivas Regal.
Benriach Distillery is situated three miles south of Elgin to the east of the A941 .
