Balblair

The Balblair distillery was originally founded in 1790 yet it did shut down production in 1911 and didn’t reopen till after the Second World War, when Churchill decided he quite liked whisky and multiple distilleries reopened to fill his demand (just kidding, he set out am edict that whisky needed to be made and sold to the US, revitalising the industry). Balblair remained fairly unknown, until 2007. At which time, the whisky was repackaged in attractive rounded bottles and charming display cases. Most significantly, Balblair started bottling vintage whisky and people decided they were well into that, now Balblair are one of the fastest growing distilleries, up there in those Highlands.

    £47.50

    £47.50

    Based on the idyllic coast of the Dornoch Firth, Balblair has been making whisky since 1790 and is unique in that, instead of ageing for set periods of time, Distillery Manager John MacDonald selects whiskies when he deems them to be ready, and so they are labelled with the year in which the whisky was laid down. The American oak and ex-bourbon barrels used to age the 2005 maturation impart toffee, leather and vanilla notes, which are punctuated with flavours of apricots, oranges and spice.
