About Benriach Distillery

Benriach distillery, a single malt Scotch whisky producer in Speyside, is currently owned by Brown-Forman Corporation. Established by John Duff in 1898, it is located south of Elgin, near the Longmorn Distillery. The two distilleries were connected by a private railway with a steam locomotive, the Puggy, for transporting coal, barley, peat, and barrels. 

Production at Benriach halted in 1900 following the bankruptcy of Pattison’s whisky, a major purchaser, but its maltings continued to supply Longmorn. The distillery resumed spirit production in 1965 under Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. In 1978, it was acquired by Seagrams, which later became part of Pernod Ricard in 2001, reducing Benriach’s operation to just three months a year. 

In 2004, an independent consortium, the Benriach Distillery Company Limited, acquired the distillery, followed by the acquisitions of Glendronach in 2008 and Glenglassaugh in 2013. Benriach was sold to Brown-Forman in 2016 and is still operating today.

Benriach is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
