Benriach distillery was founded in 1897 by John Duff, builder of Glenlossie and Longmorn, and operated for just two years before it was hit by the Pattison Crisis, an economic downturn that shook the whisky industry at the end of the 1890s. While Benriach's maltings continued to supply Longmorn, the distillery remained silent for 65 years until new owners The Glenlivet Distillers resumed production. The first 10 Year Old was released in the 1990s by then owners Seagram, and the distillery maintains a 'peated season' every year where peated malt is distilled, something that started in the 1980s to supply blenders and proved popular. Benriach was acquired by US drinks firm Brown-Forman in 2016.
