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 on 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. Whisky cask first mellows the maturing spirit and imparts warming layers of vanilla spiciness. Sherry Oak further maturation in European oak sherry casks increases complexity, bringing fruity, honeyed depths to the resulting single malt.
