The Balvenie is a Speyside single-malt scotch whisky distillery located in Dufftown, Scotland. It was built by William Grant and Sons in 1892 and shares its water source (the Robbie Dhu Springs) with its neighbour, Glenfiddich. Of the 100 or so distilleries in Scotland, Balvenie is one of only seven distilleries with its own malting floor utilising locally hand-cut peat. Balvenie’s malting floor also supplies Glenfiddich.
Balvenie has become the ninth bestselling single malt whisky in the world with demand often outstripping supply. At the 2006 International Spirits Challenge, it was awarded gold medals for its Founder’s Reserve 10-Year-Old, Double Wood 12-Year-Old, Balvenie New Wood 17-Year-Old, Port Wood 21-Year-Old, Balvenie Thirty and Balvenie Portwood 1991. This was by far the largest gold medal haul for any brand in any one year since the competition began.
