Benromach is the smallest distillery still operating in the Speyside region of Scotland, with a capacity of just 500,000 litres per year and just two distillery staff. It is located in the small town of Forres, on the road between Inverness and Nairn, and is a local landmark with the tall red brick chimney of the distillery used as a marker guide for pilots landing at nearby RAF Kinloss. Benromach is one of the few distilleries that are independently owned.
The current owners are the independent bottling company Gordon & Macphail, who are based in the nearby town of Elgin. At Benromach, they are one of the new wave of small, innovative and independently owned distilleries that experiment and explore different cask finishes, new styles and peating levels. They were also the first distillery to release an organic whisky, as certified by the Soil Association, in 2006.
