Cask - BenRiach 2014 Hogshead #25 - In Storage At Whisky Broker
Lot number: 114-02699
Winning bid: £3,800
We are happy to offer the opportunity to bid on a Single Hogshead of BenRiach single malt whisky, that is currently held in bond at Whisky Broker.
After being founded by John Duff & Co in 1897, the distillery was mothballed for 65 years with only its floor maltings being used for the Longmorn distillery next door. After experiencing great success under the ownership 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. The distillery was purchased by Brown-Forman in 2016 - the same year they bought GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh - and in 2017 Rachel Barrie took over as master blender.
