INTRODUCING THE BALVENIE The Most Handcrafted Single Malt.

In celebration of our 21-year legacy, Whisky Live is thrilled to invite you back to the Whisky Live Festival – an event that pays homage to the enchanting World of Whisky.


Over the next three months we are going to introduce to you our amazing range of product that you can expect to find and enjoy at Whisky Live, from 1 – 3 November 2023 at the Firs in Rosebank.

The Balvenie is a unique range of single malts created by David Stewart, The Balvenie Malt Master. Each has its own unique taste, but each is rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by the distinctively honeyed character of The Balvenie.

The exceptional quality of The Balvenie is attributable to the unique craftsmanship retained by The Balvenie Distillery.


Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, malts in its own traditional floor maltings, employs a team of coopers to tend its casks, a coppersmith to maintain its stills and has in its service the most experienced Malt Master in Scotland.


Crafted by hand: No other single malt remains dedicated to the traditional five rare crafts of authentic whisky making. As a result, up to 5 times as many artisans are at work handcrafting The Balvenie compared to other leading single malts.

Crafted for quality: Retaining traditional practices, such as floor malting our own barley, creates a single malt of premium, unique quality, since it is 50% more expensive than our competitors’ techniques to produce.

Recognized by experts: As a result of this personal attention to detail, the quality of The Balvenie is unrivalled – recognised by over 100 leading whisky awards over the last ten years.

Each has its own unique taste, but each is rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by the distinctively honeyed character of The Balvenie.

The Balvenie Doublewood, aged 12 years Twelve years in American oak soften and add character, imparting vanilla notes and honey, while up to six months in sherry casks brings depth and fullness of flavour, with rich fruit and nutty sweetness.

The Balvenie Caribbean cask, aged 14 years Aged in second-fill traditional American oak and finished in Caribbean rum casks, for a beautifully rounded expression that combines traditional Balvenie vanilla notes with rich toffee, a hint of fruit and a warm, lingering finish.

Gear up for an immersive journey that weaves fascinating tales, unmatched tastings, and indelible moments into a tapestry of pure taste delight.
