Feel like a one-percenter with every sip.

In the picturesque hills of Speyside, in the shadows of the towering Balvenie Castle, there's a prestigious distillery that produces breathtaking Spirits. Using the cleanest water and their own barley, the Balvenie distillery employs unique state-of-the-art stills called Balvenie Bowls, and creates some of the most unique and exclusive Whiskies on the market. And it's the stills that make all the difference. Due to their special shape, vapors mix before they enter the head.

That's where the Balvenie 21 Year Old PortWood was also made, but since the Balvenie guys and gals don't settle for ordinary, they asked their own cooper Ian McDonald to craft traditional oak casks. The Spirit is aged for at least 21 years and inherits lovely notes of soft oak, honey and caramel. Then, another extra-mile thing happens: the Scotch is matured in barrels that used to house Port Wine. No wonder the lavish fruity aromas and marzipan flavors won the Whisky the Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2009 and 2012.

Deluxe, delightful, divine.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
