Fodor's Review

Offering just a handful of tours each week, you'd think that Balvenie Distillery didn't want visitors. Yet as soon as you step into the old manager's office—now gently restored and fitted with knotted-elm furniture—you realize Balvenie just wants to make sure that all visitors get to see, smell, and feel the magic of the making of this malt. Balvenie is unusual because it has its own cooperage with six coopers hard at work turning the barrels. During the three-hour

tour you'll see the mashing, fermentation, and distillation process, culminating in a five-malt tasting session.
