Benriach Cask Edition Collection 2022
Limited

Benriach continues creative legacy with latest Cask Collection

Speyside Distillery, Benriach, has launched its latest single cask bottlings, Benriach Cask Edition Collection 2022. Continuing Benriach’s creative legacy, each of the nine expressions have been drawn from single casks, each chosen by Master Blender Rachel Barrie to offer a rare and unique insight into the versatility of Benriach cask styles.

Limited to a few hundred bottles per cask, each Cask Edition is bottled at cask strength, its most natural and non-diluted form, providing an unadulterated glimpse into the spirit of Benriach Distillery. Age statements range on Cask Edition Collection 2022 from 12 year old to 27 year old.

Rachel Barrie, Master Blender at Benriach Distillery, commented: “Our ‘sleeping beauties’, as we often call our maturing casks, continue to be sourced from all over the world, enabling us to creatively explore the full flavour possibilities of Speyside Single Malt.

“Each individual Benriach cask tells its own story of classic or peated spirit matured in specially selected oak over years and through seasons, a journey of flavour captured at a unique moment in time, never to be repeated in quite the same way again.

“From the Marsala Wine Hogshead bringing out the sweetness of clementine, apricot and cherry blossom, to the Pedro Ximénez Puncheon with intense heather honey, butterscotch and sultana, each selected cask allows the drinker to explore a distinctive aspect of Benriach’s fruit-laden style.”

Benriach Cask Edition Collection 2022 is available to purchase from specialist retailers in select markets globally from March 2022.

About Benriach Distillery

A Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky as intriguing and extraordinary as Benriach could not have come to be without a unique whisky making heritage, dating from 1898, when founder John Duff built his distillery. Ruggedly beautiful, Benriach stands on the site of the old Riach farm in north Speyside, drawing water from a mineral-rich aquifer, deep beneath the distillery.

Thanks to a long-standing tradition of distilling three styles of whisky; classic unpeated, Highland peated and triple distilled, together with an eclectic selection of casks from around the world, our whisky makers are able to explore the full flavour possibilities of Single Malt, creating some of the richest, most multi-layered whiskies in Speyside.

This tradition continues today, under the guidance of Master Blender, Rachel Barrie. Benriach is the story of a hidden Speyside gem, quietly revealing its treasures to be discovered and savoured.
