BENRIACH RELEASES BATCH 14 CASK BOTTLING

The BenRiach Distillery today (30 August 2017) releases its Batch 14 Cask Bottling.

Batch 14 bottles and tubes group (1)
The seven casks of both unpeated and peated malt reflect the distillery’s experimental approach to distilling and cask maturation. Batch 14 features first fill Oloroso sherry butts, port pipes, a first fill virgin oak cask, a first fill marsala hogshead and a Pedro Ximenez sherry puncheon.

Each cask has been hand-selected for the unique taste experience it offers. The whiskies are non-chill filtered, of natural colour and come in hand-numbered bottles with gift tubes.

Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie describes Batch 14 as “an exciting and bold choice of casks,” adding:

“The single malt whiskies selected in this most recent BenRiach cask bottling reflect the innovative and pioneering philosophy of The BenRiach Distillery when it comes to making exceptional Scotch whisky.”
