From double-roasted casks to a rare rose-inspired liquid, the Stories range tells the stories behind The Balvenie's whiskies. Through these tales, this range offers a glimpse into the life of the distillery, presenting the Whisky Makers who work there.
The Week of Peat was born from Ian Millar's desire to experience The Balvenie's profile using what he had learned from a recent trip to Islay. He ordered a batch of Speyside peat so that, for one week a year, The Balvenie distils a batch of peaty malt, resulting in a whisky rich in honey, vanilla and citrus notes with an extra layer of subtle smoke.
Drinking a peaty Balvenie is a rarity and therefore it is recommended to taste it in purity to fully appreciate how the Balvenie style adapts to a gentle peat.
