product Details

Balvenie 40 Year Old Rare Marriages

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.

A remarkable bottle and presentation, the Balvenie 40 year old is a stunning whisky that has been highly acclaimed around the World.  

This one is a 2021 release, part of the Rare Marriages series and launched alongside a 25 and 30-year-old, and three 50-year-old single casks.
