Called Imperial Proof because, once, all whisky in Scotland was measured this old Imperial way. The tradition actually started with a different spirit: rum. Skeptical sailors wanted to make sure their rations had not been watered down, so they mixed a little spirit with gunpowder...if it ignited, its strength was "proved". Fortunately, today there's no need to go to such lengths to prove the integrity of your whisky. At Benromach small batches of whisky are distilled by hand using the finest barley malted with a touch of peat smoke.
