BenRiach is an independent, innovative distillery that offers a wide range of diverse whiskies such as the Fumosus range of peated whisky in a variety of finishes and the Septendecim 17 year old. The Birnie Moss expression, named after a moorland close to the distillery, is a heavily-peated (35 ppm) no age statement whisky. It was the first expression released by the current owners, who now also own Glendronach and Glenglassaugh.
