The Balvenie distillery was built in Dufftown in 1892 by William Grant, and it is located just below Glenfiddich. In fact, the two distilleries share a water source - the Robbie Dhu springs. The distillery is one of very few left in Scotland with its own maltings, and in fact some of the malt produced at Balvenie is sent to Glenfiddich. Whilst the two distilleries share barley and an owner, the whiskies produced at each is markedly different, with Balvenie known for its sweet, honeyed malts. This beautiful style saw the whisky become one of the best-selling Scotch single malts, with bottlings such as DoubleWood and PortWood receiving critical acclaim.
