Our vision is not only to maintain the great traditions of the distillery, but to break new ground with 'new' whisky expressions, borrowing from the wider world of the noble art of distilling 'craft' special whiskies that are intriguing and engaging.
The BenRiach Distillery Co. Ltd
In 2008, The BenRiach Distillery Company Ltd,
purchased the GlenDronach Distillery, located in
Forgue by Huntly in Aberdeenshire.
GlenDronach is world famous for producing richly
sherried single malt whisky and has a long
standing history dating back to 1826.
Today both the BenRiach and GlenDronach
Distilleries are once again producing single malt
whiskies as independent distilleries and a bright
and exciting future lies ahead for both.
