Lot number: 066-1406

William Grant founded Balvenie distillery in 1892 using the 18th century mansion known as Balvenie New House. It is built just below Glenfiddich, sharing its Robbie Dhu springs water source. The distillery still uses its own floor maltings and locally-sourced peat.

Due to the success of The Balvenie's Tun 1401 series, a bigger vat was needed. Tun 1509 is four times the size and the first release is a combination of 35 American oak barrels and seven European oak sherry butts, left to marry for a few months.
