Balblair is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland. Found on the misty shores of the Dornoch Firth, it is here that they have been producing award winning highland single malt whisky since the first barrel in 1790.
Balblair whiskies are uniquely vintage, named for the year they were made, not with an age statement. Every year the distillery manager, John MacDonald, tastes judges and selects straight from the cask and only at the exact right moment, when the balance between the age and character of the whisky is just right, then they will bottle it.
The idea is to have each Vintage represents an exact moment in time, a moment of perfection.
