To make Benriach Twelve, Benriach spirit is three cask matured for at least twelve years in sherry casks, bourbon barrels and port casks. The whisky from each cask is then expertly married together to create a smooth, sherry-rich single malt, layered with baked fruit, maple honey and cocoa, perfectly balanced with a lingering sultana and spiced mocha finish.

"Smooth, sweet, and spicy is the name of the game with this smoke-free dram which opens to reveal the dried fruit influence of sherry and port casks in addition to sweet orange zest, honey, and cocoa." Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Founded in 1898 by John Duff, the original BenRiach was short-lived; following monetary difficulties the distillery was sold to the Longmorn Distilleries Company who closed it at the turn of the twentieth century. BenRiach, named for the Gaelic for ‘speckled mountain’, was one of the few distilleries with its own floor maltings. The upturn in whisky’s fortunes in the 1960s saw Benriach run from 1965 onwards under numerous new owners; The Glenlivet Distillers, then Seagrams, then Pernod Ricard followed by the South African company, Infra Trading, who then established the BenRiach Distilling Co. Brown-Forman, the Louisville, Kentucky-based producer of Jack Daniel's, in-turn bought the BenRiach Distilling Co in 2016. Today, BenRiach is in full production and has become a firm favourite for many Scotch whisky fans since it was reinvigorated under Walker and Co. It has cemented a reputation as an unconventional whisky distiller with some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. BenRiach distils three malt whisky styles - unpeated, peated and triple distilled - and is one of the two remaining Speyside distilleries to use malted barley from its own on-site floor maltings, which were reopened in 2013.
