The Blair Athol Distillery, stands at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands in the picturesque town of Pitlochry, Perthshire. Blair Athol’s ancient source of water from the Allt Dour and its setting in the peaty moorland of the Grampian mountains combines to create the whisky’s, mellow quality and smooth finish.

Blair Athol Distillery Exclusive Batch No.1, is said to deliver notes of green orchard fruits, baking spices, vanilla, brown sugar, liquorice and toffee on the nose. Followed by notes of vanilla, red apple, dried fruit and toasted nuts on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Neil Murphy, Senior Site Manager at Blair Athol, said: “We are proud to present this rare expression of whisky in our Distillery Exclusive bottle. The unique flavour and distillery character of this malt whisky owes much to the location of the distillery in the foothills of the Grampian Mountains, but more to the traditional skills of our expert team. It’s a tasting experience that lovers of Blair Athol and whisky are sure to enjoy.”

Limited to 6,000 bottles, Blair Athol Distillery Exclusive Batch No.1, will be available later this month, exclusively from the distillery, for a RRP of £90.00.
