Everything you love about The Balvenie Single malt with a rare, smoky twist.
The Balvenie Distillery is just up the road from Glenfiddich on the north side of Dufftown — smack dab in the middle of Speyside. And a young William Grant worked at the nearby Mortlach Distillery for more than twenty years. And when he was ready to start out on his own, he bought an empty field and laid the foundation stone for The Balvenie in 1886.
Still owned by William Grand & Sons, The Balvenie has long been a favorite of Speyside Whisky lovers. It’s famous for producing Single Malts in the classic styles of the region — light, fruit-forward, sweet, and clean without a trace of peat smoke.
The Balvenie is famous for its delicious Highland Single Malt Whisky crafted in the classic Speyside style — and that means light and crisp with NO PEAT. But — ever the rebels — for one week each year they produce a peated Single Malt. Fans wait patiently each year for the coming release of this stark hybrid dram — a lovely Speyside with a smoky tang. Well, we have access to a few bottles of the inaugural release of the rare and anticipated Spirit from 2002 — aged in ex-Bourbon casks for fourteen years. And yes, you should thank us profusely.
