It is in this spirit that BenRiach Distillery is delighted to showcase its pioneering peated Speyside heritage by releasing BenRiach Temporis Aged 21 Years, the latest addition to the award-winning BenRiach peated range, winning a Silver Outstanding Medal at The International Wine and Spirits Competition 2017.

Which is why the new Sommelier prize from the IWSC in partnership with Marchesi Frescobaldi is expected to be in big demand.
