About Benromach Distillery

Benromach distillery, located near Forres in Morayshire, was founded in 1898 by Duncan McCallum and F.W. Brickman. It is currently owned and operated by Gordon and MacPhail of Elgin, using spring water from the Chapelton Springs in the Romach Hills.

The distillery was established in 1898 but production only began in 1900 due to a depression in the Scotch whisky industry. Unfortunately, it closed the same year due to financial difficulties. Benromach was acquired by Harvey McNair & Co in 1911, continuing operations until World War I. After the war, it changed hands several times and was modernised between 1966 and 1974, but it ultimately closed in 1983.

In 1993, Gordon and MacPhail took over and restored the distillery, which was reopened by Prince Charles in 1998. The distillery’s design was altered to be operated by a single person. Benromach started bottling its new malt in 2004. In 2014, Benromach 10 Years Old won gold in the “Best Speyside Single Malt – 12 Years and Under” category at the World Whisky Awards.

Benromach 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.
