The BenRiach Distillery Co has launched a limited-edition BenRiach peated single malt, Latada.

The new expression is finished in Madeira casks and is the third BenRiach in a range of peated wood finishes, joining the BenRiach Albariza and Dunder. Only 4,001 bottles will be released.

Its name comes from the traditional “Latada” or trellised vine system on Madeira where the vines are laid out horizontally above the ground on low trellises.

In July, BenRiach said it will invest GBP25m (US$39m) over the next two years to drive growth for its single malt brands.
