Break Even XIII: The BenRiach – Heart Of Speyside
– In Collaboration with Destination Cellars Tasmania –

Saturday, July 7th 2018, Hobart Tasmania


Destination Cellars Hobart in collaboration with Hoposphere invite you to Break Even XIII, on Saturday the 7th of July 2018.

We will journey through 7 different Single Malts from the BenRiach Distillery, including the 16 Year Old, 17YO PX Finish, 21YO Port Finish, the 22YO Moscatel Finish.

We will also taste 3 Single Casks from the BenRiach Distillery, including a 40 Year Old Peated Sherry Single Malt distilled in 1975.

‘Distillery founder John Duff travelled to Kentucky and South Africa in pursuit of whisky adventures, returning to Scotland in 1898 to build the BenRiach Distillery. It is in his adventurous spirit that BenRiach boldly approaches the art of distillation and cask maturation. We call it BenRiach Maltology.

As progressive Speyside whisky distillers, BenRiach crafts unpeated, peated and triple distilled malt whisky and holds some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. Small wonder the distillery team have nicknamed the distillery ‘The Lab’.

We are one of just two remaining distilleries in Speyside to distill whisky using malted barley from its own onsite floor maltings, a time honoured method that is celebrated for one month each year.’

Tickets are limited to 36 people, RSVP is essential to avoid missing out. Finger food, good times and access to discounted stock to attendees provided.
