The Benrinnes Distillery gets its name from the 2,759 foot Benrinnes Mountain that rises above the mountain range that overlooks eastern Speyside. The distillery rests on its northern slopes. The exact date of the beginnings of Benrinnes Distillery is somewhat vague. A reference is made in 1826 when Peter Mackenzie was recorded as the licensed distiller. Major reconstruction was undertaken in the 1950's and the stills were increased from three to six in 1966. A "form" of triple distillation is practiced at Benrinnes.
