Balvenie Scotch Whisky
Balvenie is a very traditional Scottish malt whisky distillery, located in Dufftown within the famous Speyside region of Scotland. Balvenie whisky was founded by William Grant in 1889, after he worked as a youngster in Mortlach Distillery as a book-keeper. It was here that he learned the art of distilling and bought some land beside The Balvenie Castle. The distillery was built in 1886 and to this day still practices the most traditional of whisky making processes passed on down through centuries. Balvenie grow their own barley which is then floor malted, and employ their own specialist coppersmiths who look after their traditional copper stills, as well as their own coopers who maintain and rebuild all their casks.
