In 2004, the BenRiach Distillery Company Ltd was established with the acquisition of The BenRiach Distillery by an independent consortium led by Billy Walker. In 2008, the company purchased the iconic GlenDronach Distillery, located in Forgue by Huntly in Aberdeenshire. The GlenDronach is world famous for producing richly sherried single malt whisky and has a long standing history dating back to 1826. In 2013, the BenRiach Distillery Company Ltd acquired Glenglassaugh Distillery, which lies on the Moray Firth coast, near Portsoy. Glenglassaugh is a coastal Highland malt with a fruity character and stocks dating back to 1963. Today our distilleries are once again producing single malt whiskies as independent distilleries and a bright and exciting future lies ahead for all.
