Balvenie Distillery

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Region

Speyside


Owner

William Grant and Sons


Founded

1892 | William Grant


Balvenie sits on the same ground as its sister distilleries Glenfiddich and Kininvie, although the spirit they produce is noticeably different. They still malt their own barely on site, one of very few distilleries to do so. Even though this only amounts to around 10% of their total barely, Balvenie believe this adds a contributing flavour to their whisky.
