The Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year Old is a single malt Scotch Whisky first distilled in 1893 at the Balvenie Distillery.
The Balvenie enjoys a reputation as one of the world’s finest Scotch brands, owing much to the traditional techniques which are still employed today.
Indeed, this independent and family owned distillery is the only of its kind to still grow its own barley, malt in its own traditional floor maltings and employ coopers to tend the casks.
The Doublewood 12 Year Old single malt whisky gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. Over the period of its development, the spirit is transferred from a traditional whisky oak cask to an original sherry oak cask.
Each stage of this ageing lends a specific quality to the resulting Scottish Whisky - the traditional wood softens and adds character, the sherry wood brings depth and a fullness of flavour.
