About BenRiach 12 Year Old The Smoky Twelve Scotch Whisky

In the early 1970s, Benriach started to explore peated distillation, making some of its whisky in the old, 19th century style using malted barley smoked with Highland peat. Another milestone came in 1994, when the distillery, previously only making spirit for blends, launched its first ever single malt, a 10-year-old edition. Four years later, Benriach began making small batches of triple distilled spirit, adding the third style to its family of award-winning Speyside single malts, which now consists of classic unpeated, Highland peated and triple distilled whisky. All three styles of whisky are kept in the Warehouse 13, which is the oldest original dunnage warehouse from 1898, maturing in an eclectic range of casks, sourced from all over the world. Benriach’s warehouses hold an exceptional collection of single malts dating back to 1966.

The Smoky Twelve is a 12-year-old edition of Benriach’s peated Speyside single malt Scotch whisky, crafted from a combination of unpeated and peated spirit. The whisky is matured for at least twelve years in three different types of casks: bourbon barrels, sherry casks, and Marsala wine casks, and then expertly married together to create a smooth, creamy single malt.

About Benriach

Amidst the lush greenery, in the heart of Speyside, sits the pagoda’d roof of the BenRiach distillery. A facility that has been producing single malt Scotch since 1898. The area of Moray is known for its funnel shape, with the tip pointed to the source of the Spey River. Benriach sits at the very center of this funnel, just outside the town of Elgin. The story of BenRiach is one of resilience. In 1897, John Duff built the BenRiach distillery, after his early success with his Glenlossie and Longmorn distilleries. He even built a railroad in 1990, for the purpose of moving supplies back and forth between the two shops.

The timing of his ambitious pursuits, however, proved problematic. Following the Pattison crash of 1899 and the downturn of the domestic market, BenRiach, along with many other distilleries were fated to close. The distillery had barely been operational for 2 years, before being made almost irrelevant for 65 years. During these 65 years, the plant remained operational solely as a malting facility for Longmorn. The two sister distilleries were essentially consolidated into a single working unit, BenRiach produced the grain, and Longmorn distilled it.

But the 1960s were good to BenRiach as well as the entire industry, and the facility remained operational from 1965 onwards. After changing several hands, Benriach is currently owned by Brown-Forman Corporation after the acquisition in 2016.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
