Balvenie lies in the Convals in Dufftown. The distillery was built by William Grant just below Glenfiddich in 1892 sharing its water source the Robbie Dhu springs with its illustrious neighbour. Despite also having the same distiller Balvenie is hugely different in character. It is one of the few Scotch distilleries to boast in-house floor maltings utilising locally hand-cut peat. The floor maltings at Balvenie also supply neighbouring Glenfiddich.
