The Balvenie weaves a saga that will tempt the most ardent Islay drinkers to this Speyside peat whisky. For one week of the year, distillery manager Ian Millar and the team use peat from Speyside bogs in the kiln to dry their in-house malted barley. This process is arduous and the end result is a beautifully smoky, honeyed dram with citrus notes rising from the embers to bring you harmony and balance in every sip. The velvety texture of this whisky will remind you why Speyside is considered the cream of the crop for Single Malt Whisky.
Thanks to a special combination of natural alchemy and centuries old craftsmanship, The Balvenie is unique among single malt producers in Scotland. One of the few remaining distilleries to grow and malt their own barley in-house, they also have a resident coppersmith who maintains the stills, and they employ a team of coopers who ensure each barrel is in perfect condition before they are filled. Lastly, their Malt Master David Stewart presides over the all-important maturation process. Their attention to detail and ability to control all processes from start to finish has made them a favorite among those in the know. Come taste what all the fuss is about!
