The whisky is distilled in two stills using a lightly peated malt and spring water from the Romach Hills.
Built on the River Findhorn in Forres in 1898 it operated sporadically and was finally closed in 1983.
Benromach distillery was acquired by Gordon & MacPhail in 1993 and officially opened by HRH Prince Charles in 1998 on its Centenary.
