Collection Benrinnes - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Benrinnes is a malt whiskey distillery founded in 1826 in Aberlour. Benrinnes takes its name from the mountain Ben Rinnes (841 metres), one of the most important peaks in all of Speyside. The distillery used a unique partial triple distillation process until 2007.

The triple distillation process was abandoned in 2007, moving to a more common configuration of two wash stills and four spirit stills.

Benrinnes employed some unusual production techniques. Between 1974 and 2007 the distillery used a unique partial triple distillation process. In this process, the feints from the wash still, the weaker parts of the feints from the spirit still, and the feints from the low wine still themselves are distilled in a low wines still, while the spirit still contains the foreshots and the heart of the wash and low wine Still, as well as their own foreshots and strong feints. The necks of the stills are cooled by worm tubs, a technique that is not very common today.

Most of the production goes into the Blended Diageo: Johnnie Walker, J&B and Crawford's 3 Star. Official bottling is limited to just 5 bottlings over the lifetime of the distillery.
