Benromach Distillery is located in the Speyside area of Elgin, Scotland, near Forres, Morayshire, and is powered by Chapelton Springs water in the Romach Hills.
The distillery was founded by Duncan MacCallum and F.W. Brickmann in 1898, however, due to the crisis in the Scotch whisky industry, the distillery did not start production until 1900. Unfortunately, in the same year the owners were forced to close the operation due to lack of funds.
However, as early as 1911, the Benromach distillery was purchased by the London-based Harvey McNair & Co. The distillery operated until the outbreak of World War I, and after the end of the war, the distillery became the property of Beromach Distillery Ltd, which owned the distillery until 1925. Subsequently, in 1938, the Benromach Distillery was acquired by the Associated Scottish Distilleries Ltd, which later became part of Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd. The distillery was modernized and operated until 1983, when it was closed.
Fortunately, in 1993 Gordon and Macphail became the owners of the distillery, and in 1997 they started working to make the distillery able to produce whisky again. Eventually, the plant was reopened in 1998 by Prince Charles of Wales, and bottling began in 2004.
