About the Distillery: Balvenie was built on a 12-acre site adjacent to Glenfiddich in 1892/3. Originally known as Glen Gordon it took the name of the huge (ruined) castle which was located next door. The ‘new’ castle, already derelict in 1893, was turned into maltings. Of the 120+ distilleries in Scotland, Balvenie is one of only seven distilleries with its own malting floor. And the only distillery that still practices all 5 of the Rare Crafts all on-site (growing barley, malting barley, onsite Copper Smith, onsite Cooperage, and The Balvenie Malt Master, David C Stewart).

Distillery Region: Speyside

Stated Age: 12

Cask Type: American oak casks then transferred to European oak Oloroso sherry butts.
