About Balvenie Distillery

Balvenie Distillery, a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky distillery located in Dufftown, Scotland, is owned by William Grant & Sons. William Grant, born in Dufftown, bought a field near Balvenie Castle and laid the foundation stone for his distillery in 1886, with it opening in 1892 – he remained active in the company until his death in 1923 at age 83. 

Balvenie produces whisky using traditional methods, including locally grown barley and floor malting, making it one of only seven distilleries in Scotland with its own malting floor and the only one practicing all five Rare Crafts on site: growing barley, malting barley, onsite Copper Smith, onsite Cooperage, and the expertise of Malt Master David C. Stewart.

In 2007, Balvenie’s Global Brand Ambassador David Laird presented an online documentary series on malt whisky making at Balvenie.

Balvenie is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
