Kininvie
Distillery
Founded in 1990
The Kininvie Distillery is actually just a shed that works as a still house, located in the backyard of The Balvenie Distillery.

The distillery was founded in 1990, in Balvenie Distillery's backyard. The main purpose was to use the output in William Grant & Sons blended Whiskies. The distillery also released some single malt expressions, called Hazelwood, and in 2013, the Kininvie single malt was released at the age of 23.

Balvenie uses one full lauter mash tun and ten washbacks. This equipment is dedicated to Kininvie, they work 24/7. Most production goes toward the Kininvie single malt, and the Clan McGregor and Monkey Shoulder blended malt Whiskies.

About
Speyside
Glens a plenty, history in abundance - that's Speyside.

The most densely populated Whisky region in the world sits in a fertile valley of rivers and glens. Home to over half of Scotland’s distilleries, Speyside malts from these fifty or so distilleries are hard to summarize, as there's a lot of flavour variety.

One thing we can say is that they're known for being frugal with peat and lavish with nutty fruit flavours. Apple, pear, honey, vanilla and spice all have a part to play in the Speyside Whiskies. Speyside Whisky also knows its way around a Sherry cask.
