It is not only playing a big part in the movie ‘Angels Share’ that has made this distillery famous but the exceptional whisky it produces. This distillery was built in 1790 however was built on a site that had sited a distillery 40 years prior. This area of the Dornoch Firth is well known for its ancient archaeology. The water source for this distillery is a burn (or stream for the Australian readers) called Allt Dearg which helps this distillery produce 1,330,000 litres of whisky per year. This is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and has been built in an amazingly scenic part of the country which boasts peaty streams and lush green fields.
The majority of the whisky produced at Balblair goes in to the popular blend Hankey Bannister, with only about 10% being released as Balblair single malt. From this distillery you should expect a wonderfully light and fresh whisky with a nutty aftertaste and clean finish, a delightful memorable whisky.
Launched in 2007 Balblair created a trio of vintage whiskies in its core range. The 1989 Vintage is matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and ex-Sherry barrels. Bottled at 43% abv.
Now been discontinued and whatever is left in Australia is the last we will ever see.
