BenRiach stands on the site of the old Riach farm in north Speyside, drawing water from a mineral-rich aquifer, deep beneath the distillery. Thanks to a long-standing tradition of distilling three styles of whisky; classic unpeated, Highland peated and triple distilled. Making Benriach one of a hand-full distilleries remain to use triple distill in their process.
The BenRiach Distillery Co was formed in 2004 by two funding partners and Billy Walker, known as a Scotch whisky expert. Which then acquired Benriach distillery from Chivas Brothers. A group of private investors, who picked up BenRiach during 2008, providing enough capital to increase production and set about offering a wider range of releases. The BenRiach Distillery Company including the Glenglassaugh and Glendronach distilleries was then acquired by Brown-Forman, the Louisville, Kentucky-based producer of Jack Daniel's, in 2016 for £281 million.
