The Balvenie 50 Fifty David Stewart

The Balvenie Fifty
This limited edition variant celebrates the house master distiller, David Stewart’s 50th anniversary with the Speyside company.

In 1962, the year he joined the company, Stewart laid down a batch of The Balvenie single malt whisky in a rare European oak sherry hogshead.

“It’s true to say I have a dream job and I’ve been privileged to taste a lot of wonderful whisky in my time, but it’s a great delight to discover how after half a century this unique cask has turned out a truly special single malt.,” he said.

Only 88 bottles of The Balvenie Fifty have been produced, each with a price tag of £20,000.
