Award-winning start to Benromach Distillery’s 20th anniversary year...
The Benromach Distillery Company Ltd. has added to its awards collection following success at the 2018 World Whiskies Awards.
Benromach 15 Years Old single malt was crowned the winner in the Speyside 13-20 category, while the flagship Benromach 10 Years Old was honoured with Gold in the Speyside 12 Years and Under category.
The World Whiskies Awards are part of the prestigious World Drinks Awards scheme, presented by the Drinks Report. Now in the 11th year, the awards aim to select the highest quality in all internationally recognised styles of drinks.
Benromach Distillery Manager, Keith Cruickshank said:
“We’re thrilled with the success of our products in the World Whiskies Awards. We are very proud of our core range of hand crafted single malts providing whisky lovers with the opportunity to discover a lost taste of Speyside.
“This is our anniversary year, celebrating 20 years of distilling since Benromach reopened following its purchase and extensive refurbishment in 1998. The year is off to a great start and we have an exciting calendar of activities and product launches over 2018 to look forward to.”
Gold medal winner Benromach 10 Years Old is created using the finest Scottish barley and pure spring water from the nearby Romach hills. After maturing for ten years, the whisky emerges golden in colour and displays rich fruit, sweet chocolate and delicate spicy aromas. With a rich sherry influence, the mouth-watering palate coats the senses with exotic fruit flavours, toasted malt and a delicate hint of smoke.
With a distinctive golden amber colour thanks to its long maturation in sherry and bourbon casks, the award- winning Benromach 15 Years Old is a stunning dram. Beautifully balanced sherry aromas lead on the nose followed by vanilla and spicy ginger, complemented by delicate chamomile and menthol notes. This is followed by flavours of stewed plum, red apple and the sharp edge of kiwi fruit on the tongue.
