Annandale Distillery. Established in 1836 and closing in 1918, this lowland distillery reopened it's doors and sprung back into action in 2014 producing scotch whisky after a 90 year break. Traditional chimney stack and pagoda roof, tie in the history of the buildings with the impressive, modern redevelopment. The Washbacks and Stills share an open plan room. Clean, crisp and bright room is in contrast to many darker, dustier and settled distillery counterparts. The Mash Tun. Where the grain and the water meet and mingle. This is where heating this mixture produces the sugars from the broken down barley grain's starch. From 'porridge' to a hot sugary liquid called Wort, this is drained and collected where it then moves to the wash-backs for fermentation. #scotch #whisky #lowland #whiskey #lostdistillery #founddistillery #annandale #distillerytour RT @isleofislay: The Islay Daily Newspaper is out! https://t.co/aStAyOvbdW #islay #news Stories via @ScotsMagazine @WhiskyBarrel @Netweather

Balblair 1983 vintage 1st Release Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels.

Nose: On the nose there are warm aromas of butterscotch, toffee and vanilla that come from the long years of maturation in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. Citrus fruits can also be detected in the aroma adding to the complexity of this exceptional Vintage.

Palate: On the palate it is sweet and spicy; fresh fruits and honey combine to create a long, warming and full bodied finish.

Balblair Distillery

Balblair Distillery was originally established by John Ross at Balblair Farm just to the west of Ederton by the southern shore of the Dornoch Firth. Whilst distillation was probably in progress as early as 1749 Balblair malt whisky distillery was officially established in 1790 when most things were moved by manpower and gravity. Then a short move and into new buildings situated right beside Ederton railway station in 1894 to connect to the whisky blenders down south. Balblair is a fantastic Scottish Highland malt distillery, stone built and slate roofed, which has retained its round red brick chimney, single pagoda roof and dunnage warehouses. Balblair Distillery visitor centre welcomes visitors and offers tours around Balblair Distillery.
