In this episode of Raw Craft, Anthony Bourdain heads to The Balvenie distillery in Dufftown, Scotland to explore the magic and tradition of whisky making practiced there since 1892. Meet the special group of Scots who have kept the age-old process of single malt whisky making alive over the generations.
Hundreds of years of experience go into making of each batch of whisky. From the cooper to the malt Man to the coppersmith – it’s a craft the whole way through. Legendary Malt Master, David Stewart in his sixth decade, guides the ship making ground breaking whiskies along the way. Each craftsmen is dedicated and serious about their work resulting in some of the best whiskies in the world.
The Balvenie Distillery alliance with craft is a result of the brand’s choice to embrace the old way. Balvenie is dedicated to the process of using the five rare crafts of Scotch whisky making to create The Balvenie’s distinctive taste and exceptional quality. It is the only distillery that still grows its own barley, malts in its own traditional malting floor, employs coopers to tend every cask, a coppersmith to maintain the stills and a malt master to ensure the resulting spirit is consistently excellent.
