Anchor Distilling Debuts Four New BenRiach Malts In U.S.January 7, 2014
Four new single malt Scotch whiskies from Speyside’s BenRiach Distillery are rolling out in the U.S., imported by San Francisco-based Anchor Distilling. Anchor already markets 20 BenRiach expressions in the U.S. That offering will now be expanded to include: The BenRiach Horizons 12-year-old Triple Distilled (50% abv, $80 a bottle), The BenRiach Solstice 2nd Edition 17-year-old (50% abv, $100), The BenRiach Septendecim 17-year-old Peated Single Malt (46% abv, $80) and The BenRiach Authenticus 25-year-old Peated Single Malt (46%, $250).
Formerly part of Chivas Brothers, BenRiach, was acquired by industry veteran Billy Walker and partners in 2004 following a period of dormancy. It earned Distiller of the Year honors from Whisky Advocate in 2007. In addition to its namesake malt, Walker’s BenRiach Distillery Co. includes Highland single malts Glenglassaugh, acquired from Amsterdam-based Scaent Group last March, and GlenDronach, acquired from Pernod Ricard in 2008.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
