This special whisky celebrates 20 years since production started at Benromach after the distillery was refurbished and re-opened in 1998.

Distilled in the first year of production, only 3,000 bottles of this highly anticipated limited edition single malt will be available worldwide.

Matured in first fill oak casks in the traditional dunnage warehouses at the distillery in Forres, the 20th Anniversary Bottling is part of the classic range of Speyside single malt Scotch whiskies.

This new expression is described as "epitomising" the Speyside distillery's "classic style", with "rich fruits, fresh citrus and charred oak" on the nose and  a "light touch of smoke" on the finish.

A hardback book accompanies the whisky and celebrates the time-honoured traditions that are employed to make the distillery's hugely popular whisky range.

There will be 3,000 bottles produced, of which 400  will be available for purchase at the Benromach Visitor Centre in Forres.

Keith Cruickshank, distillery manager at Benromach, who joined as a Distiller in 1998 said: “When we began distilling again in 1998, we wanted to recreate the unique Speyside whisky taste which historically had a touch of smoke.

"The 20th Anniversary Bottling uses the finest ingredients to create a gorgeous whisky that has exceptional depth and smoothness.

“This new expression gives Benromach lovers around the world the chance to own and taste a moment in time from the distillery’s rich history.

"Part of the Benromach classic range of single malts, this is a rare and exceptional whisky and a fitting dram to unite Benromach consumers globally to celebrate our 20th anniversary year.”

The Benromach 20th Anniversary Bottling is described by the experienced distillery manager as capturing "the classic character of Benromach Speyside single malt Scotch whisky".

"It's rich, smooth and beautifully balanced, with a hint of smoke, this is the traditional taste that was almost lost forever, but which we brought back when we reopened Benromach in 1998."
