A Revelation of Cask and Character tells the tale of expertise, intuition and the craft of Coopering... and the story of how Sherry casks became a staple part of Scotch Whisky.

A Revelation of Cask and Character is the result of years of curiosity and learning from The Balvenie coopering team, including Head Cooper Ian McDonald and Balvenie apprentices... but our story begins with an unexpected discovery even longer ago...

The folklore says Oak casks were used to transport whisky across the British Isles, hundreds of years ago. By the time the casks reached their destination, the whisky would have taken on some of the depth and richness of whatever liquid these casks once held. And so, storage in certain casks became a conscious choice rather than a circumstantial one. Over time, the use of Oak casks became instrumental in the quality and final flavor of the whisky.

With a deep sense of curiosity, Ian and his team have traveled around the world uncovering and exchanging skills and expertise, passed from generation to generation. One trip in particular to a bodega in Jerez, Spain in 2009, inspired this innovation that nods to the beauty and great character of casks.

Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie describes this unique 19-year-old Balvenie as “ a really rich expression, with familiar honey smoothness revealing layers of spice and intense ripe fruits” and “the perfect way to showcase the journey of our Coopers.”
