The sister distillery of single malt giant Glenfiddich, The Balvenie distillery was built in 1892 by William Grant just a few years after he built Glenfiddich. Today, the two sister distilleries remain under the ownership of William Grant and Sons, making them one of the last remaining locally and privately owned distilleries in Scotland. The current Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, is one of the most respected in the industry, with fifty years of experience in the industry as of 2012, and under his stewardship, the Balvenie has emerged as a whisky catering to the malt enthusiast, with a wide range of whiskies that have spent time maturing in different casks for added depth of flavour. Standard impressions include the Balvenie Doublewood, the Balvenie 15YO and the Balvenie 21YO Portwood.

Flavour Profile
