The definitive Highlands Whisky


Blair Athol Distillery stands at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands in the picturesque town of Pitlochry, Perthshire. Situated in open moorland to the south of the city, on the foothills of the Grampian Mountains, Blair Athol's ancient water source - the Allt Dour - flows from the slopes of Ben Vrackie, contributing to the sweet and smooth whisky.

Founded in 1798, the distillery was then called Aldour Distillery, in reference to the local water source, before being renamed in 1825, taking the name of the nearby village (Blair Atholl). Around 95% of malt whiskey is used in the blending of Bell's Blend, the most popular blend in the UK and a leading brand in South Africa and Scandinavia.

If the distillery produces mainly for blends, since 1990 Blair Athol has released, for the Flora & Fauna spirits collection, a 12-year-old single malt whiskey with a sweet and deep aroma. In addition, several independent distillers have worked with the distillery to create personal blends.
