The Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whisky has unveiled its Rare Marriages Range in the US with the launch of the all-new Balvenie Twenty-Five. A collection of three distinct and luxury single malt Scotch whiskies, the collection also includes refreshed versions of The Balvenie Thirty and The Balvenie Forty.
The Balvenie Rare Marriages Range continues to showcase Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE’s dedication to craft. Stewart draws on stock from The Balvenie’s oldest and rarest whiskies to create balanced marriages – showcasing the essence of luxury through the experience of various flavors. On the surface, each expression in the range features the smooth honeyed finish The Balvenie single malts are known for.
“The Balvenie Rare Marriages Range is designed to unveil the intricacies of our whisky in a bold marriage of extraordinary character,” explains Stewart. “This range, made from casks that have stood the important test of time, has a distinct profile and experience which we have designed to reveal the wonderful depth of The Balvenie Single Malt.”
Neil Strachan, U.S. Ambassador, The Balvenie said: “The Balvenie is dedicated to tradition through generations of family-owned, handcrafted whisky, allowing us to create a simple yet complex spirit that spans decades.” Naomi Leslie, U.S. Ambassador, The Balvenie, added: “Our newly released Twenty-Five is a beautifully unexpected whisky, revealing layers of candied ginger, toasted coconut, and hints of black pepper as you continue to sip and enjoy.”
To craft The Balvenie Twenty-Five, Stewart carefully chose some of The Balvenie’s rarest Traditional American and European Oak casks to create the unique tasting profiles designed for the range. These single malt whiskies had matured for twenty-five years and were handpicked to complete the layers of flavor envisioned. The two casks were then married together in the brand’s Traditional Oak Tuns. The Balvenie Twenty-Five is intricate yet balanced to create an elegant, fruity expression hinting at bold vanilla oak, crystallized ginger, and sweet rich honey.
The Balvenie Rare Marriages Range is now available in limited quantities across the U.S. The Balvenie Twenty-Five is priced at $799.99, The Balvenie Thirty at $2,400, and The Balvenie Forty comes in at $6,750.
