Benromach Father’s Day campaign gathers momentum

Celebrating the skills and knowledge passed down through generations, one lucky whisky fan will also win an exclusive experience at Benromach Distillery

Benromach Distillery launched a Father’s Day campaign which aims to showcase the expertise passed down through generations, and the lasting memories which shape everyday lives.

The campaign calls for individuals to share their stories of special crafts, skills or knowledge that their Fathers have shared with them, reminiscent of the passing down of distilling expertise within Benromach.

A distillery dedicated to hand crafting its whisky using all the senses, the art of traditional whisky making has been passed down from one generation of distiller to another. It’s this ethos which has helped shape Benromach and allowed the distillery to produce award-winning single malt whisky with a classic Speyside character: beautifully balanced with a light touch of smoke.

Throughout the campaign, Benromach is also offering one whisky fan and their guest the opportunity to win an exclusive experience at the distillery in Forres.

Not only will the winner receive a behind the scenes tour of the distillery with Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager, alongside their guest they’ll also take part in a personalised tasting and meet the Distillers. With overnight accommodation in Speyside included as well, it’s the perfect getaway for whisky lovers or anyone who wants to learn about this exciting industry.

Open to residents in the UK aged 18 years or over*, two runners up will also receive a bottle of Benromach 15 Years Old.

Kicking off the campaign, Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: “You could say that the whisky industry is in my blood, with both my father and Grandfather having distillery connections during their careers. From spending time with my dad at a distillery in Speyside to visiting a local distillery with my Grandad to pick up draff for the farm, I’ll always remember the unique, sweet and malty smell. It’s these happy memories that sparked my interest in this wonderful industry.”

Join the conversation this Father’s Day by sharing your story on social media using #WhatDadTaughtMe and tagging @Benromach. Whether you were taught how to bake, shared a passion for crafting from wood together, or perfected the art of painting thanks to your Father, get involved for a chance to win a trip for two to Benromach Distillery.

Benromach Distillery
Originally built in 1898, Benromach Distillery was brought back to life when the Urquhart family realised a lifelong dream to own a distillery and purchased it in 1993. The distillery was extensively re-equipped over a five-year period before it was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Rothesay in 1998.

In reopening Benromach Distillery, the Urquhart family wanted to create a single malt whisky that has a classic Speyside character: beautifully balanced with a light touch of smoke.

Benromach Distillery is located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres. A five-star visitor centre is open to the public throughout the year for tours and tastings. Benromach Distillery is a member of the world-famous Malt Whisky Trail.
