Balblair

(bal-BLAIR)

John Ross founded the Balblair distillery in 1790, making it the second oldest working distillery in the industry. Situated where the Allt Dearg Burns flow down the Struie Hill which finish at the farmlands of Edderton which is known as “Parish of the peats”. This location is particularly beautiful. In 1894 the Balblair distillery was the rebuilt and then extended in the 1960’s.

Every floor in the warehouses are covered in earth apart from during World War II where it was used as a canteen. According to the locals the air around this location is meant to be the purest in Scotland, and as it passes over the North Sea pushed by Artic winds it picks up hints of saltiness and pine. This combination gives Balblair whisky a smooth, light and delicate taste. The distillery has barely changed since the nineteenth century and the visitor centre is available by appointment.
