The Balvenie's David Stewart has been a pioneer his entire 55+ year career with William Grant, and his legend grew no larger than when he introduced the first double-cask (finished) whisky in 1983. The Balvenie sets the standard with this elegant, rich dram that is loaded with honey, vanilla, malt, and a whiff of fruity tones. It's as complex a whisky as you'll find at 12-years age and a true delight for your palate.
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!
