About Us

Unconventionally Speyside

Distillery founder John Duff travelled to Kentucky and South Africa in pursuit of whisky adventures, returning to Scotland in 1898 to build the BenRiach Distillery. It is in his adventurous spirit that BenRiach boldly approaches the art of distillation and cask maturation. We call it BenRiach Maltology®

As progressive Speyside whisky distillers, BenRiach crafts unpeated, peated and triple distilled malt whisky and holds
some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. Small wonder the distillery team have nicknamed the distillery
‘The Lab’.

We are one of just two remaining distilleries in Speyside to distill whisky using malted barley from its own onsite floor
maltings, a time honoured method that is celebrated for one month each year.

Welcome to BenRiach Maltology®
