Balvenie 26 Year Old A Day of Dark Barley with Free Balvenie Book
A Day of Dark Barley is Balvenie's third Story in their new range. It follows the story of Malt Master David Stewart who in 1992 combined dark, brittle roasted barley with traditional barley to create a dark black-brown mash. This was then distilled and matured for 26 years, defining a rich and spicy Balvenie spirit.
To highlight that there are many stories around these different Balvenie expressions, Balvenie commissioned the book Pursuit, where exciting writers look at pursuing goals, striving for ideals, following dreams. It sounds like the perfect thing to read while having a dram.
