The Balvenie single malt distillery is located in Dufftown on Speyside in Scotland. It offers many different touring opportunities for individuals that are interested in the distillery and how it works. The tours are kept small which allows for a more personal experience.

The Balvenie distillery takes pride in maintaining the traditional methods used for its malts including hand turning the barley used in the malts every four hours.

Balvenie single malts often have a fruity flavor. They are rich, luxuriously smooth, and most have a distinct honeyed character. By using different cask types to age the single malt scotch, Balvenie produces a wide range of malts that have flavors all of their own.
