The Balvenie Distillery has been owned and managed by the same independent family company for Five Generations. Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, still malts in its own traditional floor maltings and still employs a Team of Coopers to tend all the casks and a Coppersmith to maintain the stills.
The fifth rare craft is that of Malt Master, David Stewart. Over fifty years of experience enables him to Skillfully use different types of cask and different ages of spirit to craft The Balvenie range of single malts. Each expression has a distinctive taste, but all share a rich, honeyed character.
The Traditional Floor Maltings Today's maltings were built in the 1920s. The maltmen turn the barley up to four times a day, seven days a week. Distilled at The Balvenie Distillery Banffshire Scotland Warehouse 24 is The Balvenie's community for whisky enthusiasts who want to delve a little deeper into the world of the handcrafted single malt.
