La distillerie  Benrinnes
À proximité d’Aberlour, la distillerie Benrinnes se trouve au pied de la montagne éponyme. En tant que mont, le Ben Rinnes, en deux mots, ne passe pas ina-perçu. En tant que distillerie, Benrinnes est trop peu connue. Elle fut fondée en 1826 tout près d’une ferme qui existe encore aujourd’hui, et elle portait à l’époque le même nom qu’une chute d’eau voisine : Lyne of Rothie. Trois ans après sa fondation, la rivière toute proche déborda et détruisit une grande partie des bâtiments qui durent être reconstruits. En 1842, le nouveau propriétaire, John lunes, la rebaptisa Benrinnes. En 1845, elle fut reprise par William Smith, qui fit faillite en 1864.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
