BenRiach has added two variants to its peated single malt range. Birnie Moss and Authenticus 25-year-old join BenRiach Septendecim 17-year-old, launched in January, and 10 year-old Curiositas, available since 2004, to complete the line-up.

Initially launched three years ago, Birnie Moss has been repackaged to “synchronise it” with the rest of the BenRiach range. Formerly available as a 21-year-old, Authenticus has been repackaged as a 25 year-old.

"We wanted to offer our consumers a range of peated Benriachs that would span the age range, allowing the development of the malt to be charted, and that would also be available on a regular basis,” a spokesperson for the distiller told just-drinks.

Birnie Moss is the name of an area of moorland near the BenRiach Distillery.
