The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types, known as "wood finishing". Maturation in American oak casks mellows the spirit and imparts warming layers of vanilla spiciness.Balvenie was built on a 12 acre site adjacent to Glenfiddich in 1892/3. Originally known as Glen Gordon it took the name of the huge (ruined) castle which was located next door. The 'new' castle, already derelict in 1893, was turned into maltings.
