Old Particular is a particularly unique series of individually hand-selected, aged Single Cask Single Malts and Single Grains from all over Scotland. Each is bottled exactly the way the Distiller intended: without colouring or chill-filtration, and at high alcohol strength. This combination allows the cask to retain the naturally present oils, fats and enzymes in the spirit that enhance the quality of the nose, the mouthfeel and flavour profile of the Whisky. Keeping the spirit “as natural as it gets” allows you to experience the Whisky straight from the cask, transporting you to a dark, damp Distillery warehouse with every sip.
The BenRiach Distillery was established by John Duff in 1898. It is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery in the Speyside area of Scotland. It has won many awards, including Global Whisky Distiller of the Year, World Whiskies Awards 2015 and Distillery of the Year, Malt Advocate Whisky Awards 2007.
