Balblair is what you imagine a distillery should be. Our home sits on an ancient Pictish gathering place, tucked away near the banks of the Dornoch Firth.
Our time-intensive methods make for more flavour-intensive malts. In the words of our Distillery Manager, John MacDonald, “making whisky should be a craft, not a process.” And he ensures this runs through every aspect of what we do, right down to how we label our casks. Ours are hand-stencilled and dated by the men who filled them, affording our whisky the respect it deserves.
Balblair 12 Year Old
In the fine balance of fruit, spice and sweetness, Balblair 12 Year Old encapsulates the gentle charisma of the Highlands. Elegant and approachable, this is the defining expression of Balblair Distillery, one to which all others refer.
