Balvenie distillery is located in the Speyside region, right next door to the Glenfiddich distillery, and has been producing excellent malts since 1893. Balvenie is one of the few distilleries that happen to have their own malt floors, and grow their own barley on the adjoining lands.
Balvenie 12yr Doublewood Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. During its period of maturation The Balvenie Doublewood is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill Spanish oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt – the traditional casks, having previously held bourbon, soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavor. Perfect every day dram!
