The Balvenie is a unique range of single malt Scotch whisky created by David Stewart, The Balvenie Malt Master and longest-serving Malt Master in the industry. His unmatched expertise ensures that each expression in the range makes the absolute best of the complex alchemy of spirit, wood and time. Each expression has a very individual taste, but each is rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by the distinctively honeyed character of The Balvenie.
Produced in Speyside in the Scottish Highlands, the exceptional quality of The Balvenie Single Malt is due to the fact that The Balvenie Distillery retains and nurtures a high level of craftsmanship that other malt whisky producers no longer employ: nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, still malts in its own traditional floor maltings, still employs coopers to tend all the casks and a coppersmith to maintain the stills. Balvenie keeps faith with these traditional crafts not for their own sake but because they’re the only way to achieve the distinctive taste that people seek in The Balvenie. The traditional spirit has the potential to develop in all sorts of ways. That’s why they continue to pioneer new expressions, bringing out more nuances and enriching The Balvenie experience.
Today the Balvenie Distillery produces a multi award-winning range of The Balvenie Single Malts, which includes The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old, The Balvenie Single Barrel 15 Year Old, The Balvenie PortWood 21 Year Old and The Balvenie Thirty.
The Balvenie is produced by William Grant & Sons Ltd, an award-winning independent family-owned distiller founded by William Grant in 1886 and today run by his direct descendants. William Grant & Sons Ltd distils some of the world’s leading brands of Scotch whisky, including the Australia’s favourite single malt Glenfiddich®, the handcrafted range of The Balvenie® single malts and Australia’s second largest blended Scotch Grant’s®, as well as selected other spirits, including Hendrick’s® Gin, recently voted the ‘World’s Best Gin’ by the Wall Street Journal.
