Balvenie is one of the world’s most loved Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. The multi-award-winning Balvenie Distillery in Banffshire is famous for being the only one left in Scotland to retain the traditional crafts of whisky production. Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own 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. Meanwhile, our maltmen turn the barley up to four times a day, seven days a week. The Distillery has been owned and managed by the same independent family company for five generations
