a bottle of The Balvenie
Craftsmanship is what the Balvenie is all about. Whether it’s growing our own barley or employing a team of coopers to tend to all our casks and a coppersmith to maintain the stills, we approach every aspect of the creation of The Balvenie with an eye to detail and a commitment to quality. Our craft hasn’t changed in over a century and much like these esteemed authors’ thoughts and writings it remains authentic, uncompromising and bold today.
What’s not to love? Following a long tradition of combining craftsmanship and innovation to create exclusive limited edition single malts, this year The Balvenie presents the Madeira Cask. It was aged in traditional American Oak whiskey casks before being transferred to barrels previously used in the production of Madeira wine, providing it with rich, deep and complex flavors. Now, if only all surprises were this pleasant.
It’s not hard to find quality single malt enthusiasts in your neighborhood. The Balvenie introduces Warehouse 24, an online community where members list, rate, and share tasting notes on thousands of different single malt whiskies with other enthusiasts, including world-renowned whisky experts. Collectors can also create their own virtual whisky shelf to keep track of the tasting notes of whiskies from their personal collections. Visit www.TheBalvenie.com and see how compatible you are with The Balvenie.
The Balvenie will never make anyone’s “100 Richest List.” We do, however, revel in the richness of our taste — a smooth honeyed flavor that is the result of our five rare crafts. In toto, those crafts, including the process of floor malting, are why we are known as “the most hand-crafted single malt.” A statement we are certainly not embarrassed to make.
