Description

John Duff’s Longmorn distillery was so successful that within a year he had started construction on a neighbouring sister distillery, which he named…Longmorn #2.  The distilleries were linked by a private railroad to carry coal, barley, peat and casks between the sites.  But this ambitious investment very quickly fell through, as it coincided with the bursting of the late-19th-century whisky bubble, and John Duff had to sell up.  Longmorn #2, by now renamed BenRiach, was closed, and remained silent for nearly seven decades until 1965. 

Independent bottling of Benriach by Gordon & MacPhail for their Connoisseurs Choice range.

Distilled 1987 and bottled 2007.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
