Benromach, Speyside’s smallest whisky distillery, has done it again!
Two of its Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, Benromach Peat Smoke and Benromach Organic, has won a gold and silver medal respectively in the Scotch Whisky Masters 2012 competition.
One of the most respected competitions in the industry, The Scotch Whisky Masters attracts entries from leading distilleries from around the world. The awards are decided by independent, expert judging panels after an extensive and rigorous blind tasting process.
David Urquhart, Joint Managing Director of Gordon & MacPhail, commented: “It’s wonderful to see Benromach Peat Smoke and Benromach Organic honoured by such a prestigious competition. The win is a true testament to the hard work of the Benromach Distillery craftsmen. Their skills and dedication that go into the making of our whiskies is reflected in the medals won.”
The list of awards for the whiskies of Speyside’s smallest working distillery keeps on growing: Their flagship Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Benromach 10 Years Old was awarded gold at the 2011 Great Taste Awards and in November 2011 it gained gold at TheFiftyBest.com awards in New York.
What makes this all the more amazing and undoubtedly adds to the charm of Benromach is that the distillery employs just two men!

Benromach Peat Smoke
Full bodied, intense and challenging with a smoky character, yet balanced with the fruity elegance of Speyside.
Initially launched in 2006 as the world’s first bottled Single Malt to be fully certified as organic. The whole process, including the use of the raw ingredients, distillation, maturation and bottling, is certified to the rigorous standards set by the UK Soil Association. The whisky is matured in virgin American oak casks from environmentally managed forests which has added a unique robustness and depth which complements the traditional Benromach spirit.
