The Grant family, founders of Balvenie (and Glenfiddich), have been in the distilling business for a long time and have been pretty successful. David Stewart and Brian Kinsman, the malt masters who work on cask selection for Balavenie and Glenfiddich, say this experienced family backing gives them the freedom to experiment, and implement processes that may be more expensive, but improve flavour. The Caribbean cask is an example of this, where Balvenie has been aged in ex-Bourbon casks for 14 years, then finished in ex-West Indian Rum casks.
