Balvenie 12 Year Old Signature is a classic marriage of The Balvenie matured in the three most traditional cask types and characterised by honey, spice and subtle oak. From the only distillery that still employs all the traditional crafts of malt whisky making.
Oloroso Sherry Butts: Impart deep rich fruit and subtle spiciness
First Fill Bourbon Barrels: Add subtle vanilla oak and layers of honey
Refill Bourbon Barrels: Bring delicate, sweet notes and smoothness
The Balvenie Distillery
The Balvenie Distillery lies at the very heart of Speyside. In the Scottish Highlands. In early 1892 work began to convert an eighteenth century mansion, Balvenie New House, into a distillery.
The building took fifteen months to complete and on 1st May 1893 the first distillation took place.
With little alteration over the years, the exceptional quality of The Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is due to the fact that the distillery retains and nurtures a high level of craftmanship that other malt whisky producers no longer employ.
The Balvenie is a unique range of single malts created by David Stewart, The Balvenie Malt Master for over thirty years. Each has very individual taste, but each is rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by the distinctively honeyed character of The Balvenie.
