Balvenie Whiskies Continued

William Grant was born in 1839 in Dufftown. He started working at the early age of seven herding cattle, after changing jobs several times he became a bookkeeper at Mortlach distillery in 1866. Eventually he was appointed as a clerk and then manager where he learned the distilling trade.

After about twenty years, Grant left his job at the Mortlach distillery and bought a field near Balvenie Castle. Plans were drawn up and the foundation stone was laid in the autumn of 1886.

The Balvenie range is a multi-award winner. Throughout the last 10 years many of the distillery bottlings have picked up gold and double gold awards, in-fact the Balvenie range won the biggest gold medal haul for any brand in any one year at the 2006 International Spirits Challenge.
