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 18 Year Old
This late-night expression is rich and autumnal, developed and amplified to unexpected heights, while staying perfectly balanced and closely tied to the bright and fruity character of the Distillery.
