This evening, my focus is on Benromach Distillery, which is located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres, east of Inverness and on the northern tip of Speyside. I came across this fantastic little distillery more by accident than design and it turned out to be a nice little gem. Being small Benromach is reminiscent of Edradour.

This evening, my theme is Balvenie Castle, Speyside.

This substantial castle is located close to Glenfiddich Distillery and Balvenie Distillery.

This morning we commenced by availing of a Connoisseur Tour at Glenfiddich Distillery which lasted over 2 hours. This was very well delivered, taking us through the history of this famous and privately owned enterprise and the principal malting, mashing, fermentation, distillation and maturation processes culminating in a sample of 4 malt whiskies. A quality experience. Glenfiddich suffered significant damage to the structure of its buildings-and bonded warehouses in particular-during the recent harsh winter due to the weight of snow on roofs.
