Elixir Distillers bottled this Benrinnes Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whiskey in 2021 in a limited edition of only 282 bottles. It is part of the Single Malts of Scotland (SMOS) series and matured in Bourbon Hogshead for 12 years from 2008 to 2021. The cask number is 310640. The 12 year old Benrinnes is natural and therefore uncoloured and unfiltered. It is also bottled at cask strength of 56.2% by volume.

Tasting: Benrinnes 12 years 2008/2021 Barrel 310640 in the tasting

The blender and bottling company Elixir Distillers was founded by the two brothers Sukhinder and Rajbir Singh, who are also behind the shop The Whiskey Exchange. They use their extensive experience from virtually every nook and cranny of the spirit world to fuse traditional craftsmanship with an insatiable hunger to experiment and innovate. The main focus is definitely on Scotch whisky, but also Japanese, Irish and American whiskey as well as tequila and rum have found their way into Elixir Distillers’ beautifully designed bottles. Among the most notable brands we find Elements of Islay, Port Askaig, Single Malts of Scotland and Black Tot.

Originally the company was called Specialty Drinks, and the name only changed to Elixir Distillers in 2017 – but if the two brothers blend and bottle whiskey, where does the “Distiller” part come in? Well, in 2018 they announced plans to build a new distillery on Islay’s south coast. The future looks bright for fans of smoke and peat!
