Balvenie 12 Year Old Signature Batch #1

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.

This is the first batch of the Signature, which David Stewart crafted to mark his 45th year in the whisky industry. Matured in the three most traditional cask types: first fill bourbon, refill bourbon and sherry.

When it was launched in 2007, this was intended as a replacement for the Founder's Reserve, which was discontinued two years later. The series only spanned five batches however, the last of these appearing in 2013.
