About this deal

Released as part of The Balvenie Stories during 2021 and exclusively made available in the UK through Clink, Week of Peat 17 Year Old is now available through selected specialist retailers. The first ‘Week of Peat’ whisky release was The Balvenie Week of Peat 14 Years Old, which launched globally in 2019. The product of a simple story, and a short gap in a hectic distilling schedule but a whisky of unique character and complexity. This expression of The Balvenie Stories takes inspiration from former distillery manager Ian Millar’s eagerness to experiment with peat after a trip to Islay. Passed down from generation to generation, these tales explore their expertise, their innovations and their mark on the spirit.

A sweet and smoky 17-year-old single malt from Balvenie Stories collection, made during the one week of the year that the distillery uses peated malt. Two distillery workers heavily involved with the peat week project were mashman Brian Webster and maltman Robbie Gormley, both now retired. The Balvenie Stories collection is designed to bring to life the tales of 'character, endeavour and craft' of those at Balvenie through the generations.

In the mash house there was a beautiful smell of porridge, sweet honey and gentle smoke; it was good enough to bottle! The essence of the Balvenie Stories range is to narrate the legacy of 'character, endeavour, and craft' practiced by the Balvenie craftsmen over the years.
