The Balvenie Distillery Caribbean Cask
Specially selected Balvenie—finished in casks that previously held rum distilled in the Carribean. The delicate, fresh taste of Caribbean rum enhances The Balvenie's vanilla notes in the finishing whilst adding spicy aromatic qualities to the whisky.
The Balvenie Distillery remains totally dedicated to the traditions, care and craftsmanship of malt-whisky making, and has been owned and managed by the same independent family company for five generations. The cooper's flagging iron is used during the repair of the cask to separate the staves. This allows for the insertion of reed between the staves to ensure a watertight seal. Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, that still malts in its own traditional floor maltings, that still has coopers to tend all the casks and a coppersmith to tend the stills.
