Limited edition The Balvenie Forty is now available in India
March 14, 2012: The Balvenie Forty is a unique single malt created by combining small quantities of The Balvenie Single Malt from some of the rarest casks at the distillery. Each batch of The Balvenie Forty has just 150 bottles and the fourth batch has been released for sale by the Speyside distillery.
David Stewart created this latest release of The Balvenie Forty, using a marriage of rare Balvenie whisky aged in six different European Sherry butts to produce a wonderfully refined and complex single malt. Mr Stewart says, “Batch four of The Balvenie Forty is almost syrupy in whisky terms. It has a wonderful creamy fruitiness and a velvety texture underpinned by TheBalvenie’s characteristic honeyed sweetness. For me, the notes of orange marmalade and tangy citrus cut through to create balance and complexity.”
Limited edition Balvenie Forty is presented in a bespoke wooden box, handmade in oak by Scottish craftsman Sam Chinnery and hand-engraved by Sam’s father, John.
In India, whisky enthusiasts can enjoy the Balvenie Forty Experience in India at Park Hyatt, Hyderabad with the per peg price being in the range of INR 30,000 to 40,000 per 30 ml. The second bottle is available at Hotel Crowne Plaza, Rohini, Delhi with the per peg price being INR 36,000 per 30 ml.
