Collection: Benrinnes

Benrinnes is a malt whisky distillery in Aberlour producing the whisky of the same name. It was established in 1826 and is still active today. Until 2007, the winery used a unique partial triple distillation process. The distillery was sold to John Dewar & Sons in 1922.

It was rebuilt in 1955, replacing the floor malt with a 100% Saladin box and ending the on-site farming activities. The distillery was expanded in 1966, adding three stills to the existing three, and all converted to internal heating in 1970. In 1974, Benrinnes changed its distillation process to a partial triple distillation process. The distillery stopped producing its own malt in 1984, opting instead to buy it on the market and removing the *saladin box

The triple distillation process was abandoned in 2007 when it switched to a more common configuration of two wash stills and four stills
