Benromach has celebrated two of Scotland’s best assets, whisky and the arts, with an awards ceremony in the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh.
The occasion was the Arts and Business Awards 2012 which was also sponsored by Benromach.
For the last two years, Benromach, in partnership with the National Theatre of Scotland, has sponsored the critically acclaimed The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart which has recently completed a UK tour and is now touring North America.
The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart takes theatre into pubs and other unlikely venues, where stories are told, re-told, sung and passed on. It’s an evening of supernatural storytelling, music and theatre inspired by the Border Ballads, Robert Burns and the poems of Robert Service.
The Arts & Business Scotland Awards celebrate and showcase the best examples of business partnerships with the arts and museums in Scotland. Benromach was commended for its sponsorship of Prudencia Hart in the New or Returning Sponsor category.
Michael Urquhart, Managing Director of Gordon & MacPhail, said: “This partnership represents Benromach’s first ever arts sponsorship. It’s been a great success story and highlights the real difference a successful partnership can make to both businesses.
“There is no better time to sponsor such a popular arts performance which has become a massive success in the UK as well as overseas. We’re excited to continue this sponsorship and were particularly pleased when we welcomed the cast, crew and audience to Benromach distillery where the award winning artistic performance was delivered for two nights.”
Elly Rothnie, from The National Theatre of Scotland, said: “The partnership with Benromach has proven massively successful and has helped The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart to engage in a fantastic international tour taking two of Scotland’s great assets, arts and whisky, to a global audience.”

Located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres, the Benromach Distillery is one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets. From Speyside’s smallest whisky distillery emerged a single malt with distinctive qualities reflecting its exclusive hand-made credentials as well as encapsulating the self-reliance, sophistication and modern values of Scotland today.
Just two experienced distillers create Benromach using the finest Scottish barley and the purest spring water from the nearby Romach Hills. They personally ensure that only the highest quality spirit is filled into sturdy oak casks before being left to mature at Benromach Distillery for many years.
Benromach expressions include:
Benromach Ten Years Old
Benromach Ten Years Old is created from the finest Scottish barley and pure spring water from the nearby Romach hills. After being matured for at least ten years, it emerges golden in colour and displays rich fruit, sweet chocolate and delicate spicy aromas. With a rich sherry influence, the mouth-watering palate coats the senses with exotic fruit flavours, toasted malt and a delicate hint of smoke.
A rich and mellow single malt with fruit and malty tones, balanced with a hint of smoke.
Benromach Peat Smoke
Full bodied, intense and challenging with a smoky character, yet balanced with the fruity elegance of Speyside.
A series of special bottlings crafted to highlight how small changes in the art of whisky-making can help to shape the character of the final single malt.
