Balvenie Distillery was built in 1892 in Dufftown. The distillery sits just in the shadow of Balvenie Castle. The Distillery was built by W. & J. Grant owners of the Glenfiddich distillery. The distillery was fitted with second hand stills from Lagavulin and Glen Albyn distilleries. To this day Balvenie still does some of their own floor malting’s, about 5% of their annual needs. For the first 6 hours of the 48 hour drying process they use peat and the remaining 42 hours they use coal. This gives them a slight smoky flavor to their whisky. They say it is around 5ppm. (Parts per million) The distillery has 5 wash stills and 6 spirit stills producing 5,600,000 litres of alcohol a year.
