Benrinnes Distillery

Benrinnes Single Malt Whiskey

Benrinnes Distillery was established by Peter Mackenzie in 1826 on the north-west shoulder of Ben Rinns Mountain. Following flooding in 1829 the distillery was re-built on a slightly different site in 1835 by John Innes. Only a small percentage of Benrinnes whiskey is released as official single malt but it is available in the Coopers Choice, First Editions and Carn Mor ranges. From 1956 until around 2010 distillation at followed a complex partial triple distillation process. Benrinnes Distillery is one of the few Scottish distilleries continuing to cool the spirit from its six stills in traditional worm tubs.
