Benriach is a distillery that The Oak Barrel has always been extremely fond of. A distillery that is unconstrained by consumer expectation and who are not only experimenting into the future but who already have warehouses full of barrels they’ve been experimenting with for decades. This experimentation with maturation is what made possible the wildly succesful Oak Barrel exclusive Benriach Single Rum Cask #1868 in 2020 and it allows their Master Blender, Rachel Barrie to create a range of complex and delicious releases today.
It is for this reason that we are thrilled to have the opportunity to host a living whisky legend, a man who has held just about every role possible at Benriach, Stewart Buchanan, in our tasting room for a very special meet the maker whisky tasting. Stewart is a Keeper of The Quaich, he's been involved in the whisky industry since 1993 and has held just about every role imaginable with Benriach since he joined the distillery in 2004; he is today the Global Brand Ambassador for Benriach, Glenglassaugh and Glendronach. Join Stewart as he talks about his journey through whisky, the brand that he helped bring into the 21st century and walks us through a wide range of Benriach whiskies.
Each ticket entitles the bearer to a complimentary take home bottle of Benriach 'The Original' 10-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml.
