This distillery is located in Scotland and it distils a single malt whiskey called Blair Athol and can predominately come in bottlings of 12 year-old. The distillery is based near the River Tummel on the southern edge of Pitlochry in Perthshire which is a picturesque town on the foothills of the Grampian Mountains on the Scottish Highlands.
The distillery was actually founded by 2 men called John Steward and Robert Robertson in 1798, known then as ‘Aldour Distillery’. It closed shortly after opening and was reopened again in 1825 under the ownership of John Robertson. It is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland. What adds to the flavour and taste of this whiskey is the water source - the Allt Dour, as it flows underneath the ground from the slopes of Ben Vrackie which gives the whiskeys a smooth quality and charming finish. The whiskey is matured in sherry casks and can have a sweet taste as a result. Approximately 2.5 million litres of alcohol is produced every year on four pot stills.
After a leisurely tour of the distillery, you can relax and enjoy the unique taste of the finished product as you drink your glass of Blair Athol 12 Year Old.
