The Balvenie Distillery has been owned and managed by an independent family company for five generations. This has ensured that the Balvenie Distillery is still dedicated to the traditions, care and craftsmanship of malt whisky making. Nowhere else will you find a Distillery that still grows its own barley, that still malts its own traditional floor maltings, that still has coopers to tend the casks and that still has a coppersmith to tend the stills. From this distillery comes the Balvenie DoubleWood. Two casks of different character produce a deeper, more complex flavour and greater character than maturation in only one wood. During maturation, the Balvenie DoubleWood is transferred from a traditional whisky oak cask to an original sherry oak cask, thereby acquiring character from each cask. The result is a rich, mellow flavour of great depth and unusual complexity.
