Essential Scotch whiskies: Glendronach, Benriach & Glenglassaugh
A podcast for lovers of wine, beer, liquor (incl. whisky, whiskey, bourbon, vodka tequila etc) and cocktails, Drinks Adventures hosts wine makers, brewing and distilling experts, sommeliers, bartenders & more.
Brown-Forman is an American distilling company, best known as owner of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, and bourbon brands Old Forester and Woodford Reserve.
But in 2016, it got into Scotch whisky in a big way, buying The BenRiach Distillery Company, which included three distilleries: Benriach in Speyside; the famous Highlands distillery Glendronach; and also in the Highlands, but somewhat lesser known, Glenglassaugh.
In this special episode – produced in partnership with Brown Forman – you’ll get an introduction to these unique Scotch whisky distilleries from global brand ambassador Stewart Buchanan.
Stewart’s held that role since 2012, prior to which he was Benriach’s production manager, so he has tremendous insight into these distilleries and the Scotch whisky industry generally.
He was in Australia for the launch of Glendronach 50 Year Old, the oldest expression it’s ever released.
We’ll cover that and much more in this interview with Stewart.
And you can find the new Benriach core range in both Dan Murphy’s and First Choice Liquor stores nationally.
Dan Murphy’s will also be carrying the new 21, 25 and 30 year old Benriach expressions, as well as the new Glendronach Peated and Portwood that I discussed with Stewart in this episode.
