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.
