Manufacturer Description

The Balvenie is a range of single malt whiskies crafted by Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE. Each expression is unique, but all are rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by a distinctive honeyed character.

Glenfiddich - "The Valley of The Deer" is the mesmerising landscape where William Grant, Balvenie distillery founder, turned his life-long dreams into a reality. After about twenty years, Grant left his job at the Mortlach distillery and bought a field near Balvenie Castle. He then drew up plans for his distillery, and the foundation stone was laid in the autumn of 1886. The original Glenfiddich Distillery was completed in 1887 following a year of intense, back-breaking labour by William and his family.

In early 1892, work began to convert an 18th-century mansion (Balvenie New House) into another distillery. The building took fifteen months to complete, and on 1 May 1893, the first distillation took place at the Balvenie Distillery. Grant remained active in the company until his death in 1923 at the age of 83.

Thanks to natural alchemy and centuries-old craftsmanship, The Balvenie is unique among single malts. The whisky-making process is dedicated to maintaining the Five Rare Crafts and it is the only distillery in Scotland that still grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps both a coppersmith and a team of coopers on site. Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE started working in the company in 1962 aged 17. Today presides over the all-important maturation process, making The Balvenie the most hand-crafted of single malts.
