Balblair

Edderton, Scotland

Balblair is one of the oldest working distilleries in the Scottish Highlands. Located near the banks of the beautiful Dornoch Firth, it sits in the rugged shadow of Struie Hill. Founded in 1790, Balblair is the oldest working distillery in the true heart of the Scottish Highlands.

Outside stands the ancient Clach Biorach standing stone. A landmark for over 4,000 years, this stone was used as a gathering place by the ancient race known as the Picts. Upon it, they engraved their intriguing Z-rod symbol which is a representation of the passage of time. This unique symbol inspires our packaging and reflects our dedication to craftsmanship. Here at Balblair, we believe in quality above all else.

It is our hands-on approach that gives our whisky its distinctive taste and character. By storing our casks in traditional, earthen-floored dunnage warehouses, we ensure a perfect environment for a slow and gentle maturation. The result is a whisky that is elegantly understated, yet quietly self-assured.
