New awards from William Grant

15 June, 2007

William Grant & Sons is launching The Balvenie Artisan Awards to reward businesses that have retained traditional production methods.

They will form part of a campaign to build awareness of The Balvenie as a premium Single Malt Scotch Whisky that uses traditional crafts and skills such as growing its own barley and employing a coppersmith, a spokesman said.

The Balvenie's partnership with luxury brands including Gieves & Hawkes, Savile Row bespoke tailors and Morgan cars will continue throughout 2007.
