Balvenie was built in 1892 by William J. Grant, who also founded Glenfiddich. The first documented firing took place on May 1, 1893rd Balvenie is still below the Glenfiddich distillery on the slopes of Convals near Dufftown. If you said in Dufftown - Rome what built on seven hills, Dufftown which built on seven stills - so the Grants have therefore contributed their part here twice. Meanwhile located on the premises also a third distillery: the 1990 opened Kininvie distillery. The village was first established as Duffton Balvenie. Today you can still visit the ruins of Balvenie Castle. For the erection of Balvenie was used inexpensive used stills of Lagavulin and Glen Albyn. 1957 the number of stills was increased from two to four, in 1965 and 1971, the distillery was renovated and expanded, the distillation takes place in copper stills from the own forge. These stills are designated (balloon between the neck and pot still) as Balvenie bubbles due to their peculiar shape. First came the four stills added two more, then a far. Meanwhile, the distillery has nine stills. The water for burning is now taken more local sources (Robbie Dubh), which had to share with Balvenie Glenfiddich big sister always well how the Boilermakers, coopers and distillers David Steward. Fairly unusual in this day and age, Balvenie is one of the last distilleries in the Scottish Highlands, which still uses its own traditional malting floor, has its own farm and barley supplies on the 1,000-acre site of the Balvenie Mains to the distillery. This will be turned like the old days three times a day, 7 days a week, to prevent the germination and thus to achieve a uniform ripening. The distillery and warehouse maintaining unchanged their original character and act like in the last century. The name Balvenie is today through the preservation of tradition and a lot of manual work in the production of whisky for exceptional quality and particularly quality custom single malts. To date, the distillery owned by the founding family William Grant and Sons and is one of the best-selling single malt Scotch whiskys. In particular the old bottlings as well as the single-cask whiskeys from the single barrel edition show an extraordinary quality and are among the coveted single malts from the Scottish highlands.
