The founders of Benriach Distillery could not have selected a worse time to build a distillery. Established in 1897 or 1898, the whisky recession was but a couple of years away. It closed operations in 1900, not to open again until 1965 when it was practically rebuilt by The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. In 1985, it was enlarged to four stills. Its product is highly regarded by the blenders and has been available as an "official" single malt bottling only since 1994.
