Anthony3The Balvenie, the world’s most handcrafted single malt Scotch whisky, and chef, author and raconteur Anthony Bourdain are proud to announce a multifaceted collaboration that will bring attention to some of America’s finest craftspeople. The partnership will be three-fold and will see Bourdain take a leading role in:

  • A series of short films featuring makers from around the country titled, Raw Craft
  • The selection of the next two Fellows for the American Craft Council Rare Craft Fellowship Awards in association with The Balvenie
  • Curating The Balvenie 2015 Rare Craft Collection

“For me, there is deep satisfaction in seeing people, with a particular skill set and a real passion, produce a beautiful thing which is why I’m excited to be a part of these programs in partnership with The Balvenie,” said Bourdain. “There is no doubt for me, that if you can have it, you want the stuff where people have taken their time, paid attention to and personally care about how it was created. It is very important to me that these kinds of crafts continue into the future and we value artisans who make the decision to choose quality over quantity.”
