As host of The Balvenie‘s Raw Craft series investigating the essence of craftsmanship across the U.S., Anthony Bourdain’s duties have taken him everywhere from one of America’s last hand-bookbinding businesses to a bladesmith who forges kitchen knives out of none other than melted meteorite. Now, the celebrity chef heads back to home turf in matters concerning the tongue, namely The Balvenie’s distillery in Dufftown, Scotland, where he was inoculated into the age-old culture and craft of Scottish whisky. There, he is taken on a tour through the facility, which was built in 1892, by the institution’s head cooper, coppersmith, mash man, malt man, and the malt master, who provide a holistic overview of the journey a grain of malt takes to become a drop in The Balvenie’s prized whisky. As jovial as they are passionate about their craft, these Scotsmen embody a fast disappearing attitude towards a life’s pursuit in this modern age.
