Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch #4

Balvenie was built by William Grant in 1892 and remains part of his family's company to this day. In the early part of its history, its purpose was primarily for the provision of malt for Grant's blends, however following the global success of Glenfiddich, the Balvenie single malt brand was launched in 1973. It remained a rarity though, and it was not until the opening of Kininvie in 1990, and later Ailsa Bay in Girvan, that the distillery was given the freedom to focus on its single malt. Today it is one of the best recognised brands in the world. In 1993 they launched the 12 year old "DoubleWood," an expression credited with pioneering the use of cask-finishing, and this has become a key motif for the distillery's output in recent times.

Launched in 2014, the Balvenie Tun 1509 followed the footsteps of Tuns 1401 and 1858, replacing the former.

Released in 2018, this fifth batch is a combination of 29 casks: 10 bourbon barrels, 8 sherry hogsheads, 3 refill American oak and 8 sherry butts.
