Not many family businesses have a worldwide reputation, but The Balvenie distillery is such an establishment. Founded over 120 years ago in the county of Banffshire, Scotland, The Balvenie still employs rare crafts and on-site craftsmen – such as “malt men” who regularly hand-turn the homegrown barley, a coppersmith for the stills, and coopers for barrel-making. They all contribute to an artisan collection of single malt scotch whiskies, carefully matured by the Malt Master before being shared the world over. It’s a storied reputation, yet The Balvenie offers a most approachable selection, starting with their famous 12-year-old DoubleWood.
