After being founded by the Grant family in 1898, the distillery was mothballed for 65 years with only its floor maltings being used for the Longmorn distillery next door. Now in the hands of Billy Walker and his partners, it won Distillery of the Year from Malt Advocate magazine in 2007 and has received rave reviews for its peated and un-peated expressions alike.
In April 2016, US spirits and wine giant, the Brown-Forman Corporation, agreed to buy BenRiach Distillery Company for £285m. The deal added three brands to the US firm's whisky portfolio - The GlenDronach, BenRiach and Glenglassaugh
