North Highland Larder

Balblair has been a distillery since 1790, and that heritage runs through their attitude to whisky. Bottles aren’t stamped with an age expression, rather adhering to the Balblair ‘exclusively vintage’ philosophy. Distillery manager John MacDonald tastes casks each year to decide when that particular whisky is ripe for bottling. They are then named for the year they were made, rather than the year they were bottled – current vintages range from 1965 to 2001. There's a visitor centre, complete with interactive ‘time capsule’ room explaining the history of the distillery, and tours run twice a day at peak times of the year. The shop gives visitors the opportunity to fill their own bottle from a single cask selected by MacDonald.
