Balblair Distillery

Just north of Inverness in a village called Edderton is the famous Balblair [bal-blair] distillery. Balblair is a soft and incredibly smooth malt, with lots of fresh summer fruit flavours and a well-balanced sweetness. The light, gentle nature of the whisky made at Balblair makes for an ideal introductory dram, but it is also very well regarded amongst more serious whisky drinkers for its complex style, particularly their older vintage expressions. Balblair has a strong shelf presence, particularly when there are several of them side-by-side.


  • All of the whiskies released by Balblair are bottled as vintage expressions covering both young and old
  • Colourful, elegant packaging with bespoke rounded 'dumpy' bottles
  • An appealing fruity sweetness that is ideal for newcomers to whisky
