Founded in 1826 and completely rebuilt in 1956, Benrines saw further work in 2012 and the entire process is now controlled by just one person.

With a wide cut, 73%-58%, and worm tubs used in production, Benrinnes' meaty style is at the heart of many of Diageo's blended whiskies none more so than Crawford's Three Star.

Connoisseurs Choice is one of the most easily recognised ranges from the independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. This range was launched back in the 1960s, a period where most malts were used in blends so this was quite an unusual move for the company. But the range has proved to be a hit for more than 35 years.

Distilled: September 1991

Bottled: July 2006

Age: 14 years

Cask Type: Refill sherry

43% ABV / 70cl
