Destination Cellars will be cracking some great drams from the multi award winning BenRiach Distillery on Wednesday evening June 10th at 7.30pm with National Brand Ambassador Linus Schaxmann.
Crowned Global Whisky Distiller of the Year 2015 at the Icons of Whisky Awards, BenRiach is know as the progressive Speyside whisky distillers, they boldly approach the art of distillation and cask maturation, they call it BenRiach Maltology®. BenRiach is famous for it’s incredibly wide range of whiskies including both peated and unpeated malts, and it has propelled the brand into cult status in the last decade.
This is another Distant Socializing Event, where we will send you out the sample bottles and then later on we will send you an invitation to join the Zoom meeting. To participate all you will need is your computer or phone. Or you can enjoy the samples in the solitude and sanctity of your home at any time.
We have worked closely with our importer to select these drams for you:
10 Year Old 43%abv The flagship expression from the BenRiach distillery that really showcases their beautiful distillate. This 10 year old Speyside single malt is drawn from ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks after at least a decade of slumber, resulting in a malt that shows off the distillery's style wonderfully. One of the most awarded and best value-for-money drams in the market. Awards: World Whisky Awards Gold Medal 2016, Gold Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2017, 2018, 2020. Double Gold Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019
12 Year Old Sherry Cask 46%abv This luscious 12 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is unconventionally made using three facets of sherry cask maturation: full sherry cask maturation, combined with Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry cask finishing, for unexpected layers of fruit sweetness and toasted oak spice. Each facet of sherry cask maturation is expertly combined by the Master Blender to work in harmony, creating a luscious Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a multi- layered cocktail of fruit notes, further enriching BenRiach’s signature sweet, fruit-laden style. Bottled at 46%, non-chill filtered and of natural colour. Awards Liquid Gold, 95.5 Whisky Bible, IWSC Trophy
Batch 2 Cask Strength unpeated 60.6%abv The second batch of BenRiach Cask Strength, the distillers in Speyside have combined whisky matured in bourbon, Oloroso sherry and virgin oak casks. An immense flavour bomb. Awards Gold Medal Scotch Single Malt - Speyside - 2019 International Wine & Spirit Competition
Batch 1 Cask Strength Peated 56%abv For this inaugural peated version's idea was hatched years ago, the BenRiach distillery defied convention and started to peat a proportion of its spirit, returning to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century. Matured in a combination of Oloroso Sherry casks and Bourbon barrels, Peated Cask Strength Batch 1 is non chill filtered, natural colour and bottled at 56%, so it can be experienced as if sampled from the source – straight from the cask. Awards: Gold Liquid Gold Award - 2018 Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, Silver 'Outstanding' IWSC 2016
