Buy The Balvenie Single Malt Whisky
Originally known as Glen Gordon, The Balvenie took the name of the huge (ruined) castle which was located next door to the site which was built in 1892 by William J. Grant. The name Balvenie means 'village of luck'.
Of the 120+ distilleries in Scotland, Balvenie is one of only seven distilleries with its own malting floor. Although the floor maltings only account for around 15% of the total mash, it is believed that it helps contribute to the character of the new make.
Initially established in order to provide fillings, primarily for Grant’s “Standfast blend”, The Balvenie released its first official bottling in 1973 and is now one of the fastest-growing single malt brands in the world.
The Balvenie’s single malt offerings are generally sweet, with fruit flavours and the aroma of fresh vanilla bean. There is not even a hint of smoke as these are light, yet full-flavoured whiskies made in the true Speyside tradition.
