The Balvenie distillery is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Dufftown, Scotland, owned by William Grant & Sons. The Balvenie is a unique range of single malt Scotch whiskies hand-crafted in Speyside using centuries-old skills passed down through generations. The distillery has been in operation since has been distilled since 1893.
Thanks to natural alchemy and centuries-old craftsmanship, The Balvenie is unique among single malts. The whisky-making process is dedicated to maintaining what are termed the Five Rare Crafts and we are 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. And of course, our Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE presides over the all-important maturation process.
At The Balvenie we stay true to our Five Rare Crafts, making whisky the way we always have. Our craftsmen have an intimate understanding of their materials and a desire to make the very best whisky possible. Our process is a combination of expertise, skill and ambition which gives The Balvenie its unique character. The Five Rare Crafts are focused on: Home Grown Barley which is grown the same way it has always been; the Malting Floor, one of only a handful of malting floors in Scotland; Copper Stills of all the things that affect the taste of The Balvenie, the shape and size of the unique copper still are two of the most important; Our Cooperage, the casks (barrels, butts, hogsheads and puncheons hold vital importance to the taste of The Balvenie; the Malt Master a renowned master of the complex skills required to create the very finest single malt whisky.
