Benromach is a small distillery that finds it home in Forres, in the Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands. It's owned by the brilliant independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail, who resurrected the run-down and defunct distillery in 1993. 11 years of renovation later, the distillery began bottling again in 2004. Today, the whisky produced at Benromach is truly hand-crafted. Nothing is left to chance, or technology, as each step of the distillation process is overseen and carefully managed in the old, traditional ways - sight, touch and taste. It takes a little longer, but you just can't rush quality. Each year, a batch of heavily peated spirit is produced at Benromach, and then tucked away to mature in ex-bourbon barrels.

In 2003 the original distillery was knocked down to make way for a modern purpose built facility on the same site, this whisky was of course distilled in the previous distillery buildings.

Amrut Greedy Angels 10 Year Old 60%
Peated Sherry Finish, 60% 700ml Presented in a beautiful crystal decanter with optional crystal top, in a custom made box which befits the absolute elegance of the spirit within. Each decanter comes with a certificate of provenance. Amrut Master Distiller Surrinder Kumar's newest artful creation is now primed to see the light of day and we proudly present to you, the 'Amrut Greedy Angels 10 YO Peated Sherry Finish'. This single malt whisky (324 bottles worldwide) is the second release of the Greedy Angels 10YO and also marks the first time that a peated whisky has been aged for 10 years in India. The process began by casking the peated new make spirit, distilled from Scottish peated barley, into a first fill PX-Sherry Butt for 7 years. After this period of maturation, the whisky was transferred to an ex-Bourbon cask and a 100 litre refill virgin oak barrel respectively and aged for a further three years. Here, Amrut have followed an unusual process of moving from Sherry cask to ex-Bourbon which would normally have been done the other way around. "The result is so gratifying, and one can witness a profile of peated whisky aged for over 30 years in the Scottish Isles", says Distillery representative Ashok Chokalingam. "This is made evident by the phenols which are absolutely soft and playing the hide and seek game while being punctuated by heavy sherry notes, and somewhat kneeled down by the impact of ex-Bourbon and virgin Oak maturation combination. The result is an essay in complexity, and one needs to really look deep down & under to appreciate the mystical complexity of this extraordinary single malt from the Amrut stable". The Amrut distillery was founded in 1948 as Amrut Laboratories. Established by Shri J N Radhakrishna, the company started blending and bottling various alcoholic beverages. During the 1950s and 1960s, Amrut launched products for the Indian armed forces as well as the general market; products included the dark rum Amrut XXX and Silver Cup Brandy. During the 1970s, Amrut began marketing a grape brandy called Bejois, made from Bangalore blue grapes.
