The Balvenie The Week of Peat 14 Year Old 700ml (Scotch Whisky)
The Balvenie Distillery is built on the stories that are told from each generation of craftsmen to the next. They’re our lifeblood. It is how we pass on what we know, how we process experiences, and how we create new ideas.
The Balvenie Stories range is a collection of single malt whiskies representing tales of character, endeavour and craft. Each whisky produced by The Balvenie tells a human story, evolving with the protagonists and developing unexpected twists through years of maturation.
Eager to experiment with The Balvenie profile using what he had learnt from a recent trip to Islay, distillery manager Ian Millar ordered a batch of Speyside peat for the kiln. For a week a year, The Balvenie distills a batch of peated malt, resulting in the Balvenie The Week of Peat 14 Year Old whisky rich in honey, vanilla and citrus notes with an extra layer of delicate smokiness.
Each whisky is accompanied by an audiobook which brings to life the story behind each expression, through a series of conversations between The Balvenie’s craftsmen and The Balvenie Global Ambassador Gemma Paterson. These conversations were recorded at locations significant to the narrative of each tale, including at The Balvenie Distillery and as far afield as Kelvin Cooperage, Kentucky. Each audiobook concludes with David Stewart and Kelsey McKechnie sharing a dram of some of the very first bottles of The Balvenie Stories with the craftsmen who created the whiskies you’re about to enjoy. – Distillery Notes
