Based in the Northern Highlands, the Balblair story begins in 1790 when it was founded by James McKeddy. The distillery has had a colourful past, from being mothballed in 1911 to being commandeered by the armed forces during World War 2. One of its most controversial achievements was in 2007 when it decided to revamp its range by replacing age-statement whiskies with single vintages. Each vintage is carefully created by hand-picking barrels they believe to be at their peak.
‘The Whisky Show in London is now the undisputed highlight of the whisky year and, possibly, the best exhibition of the kind in the world. This is where the best liquid meets the most discerning and influential audience so October can’t come soon enough. As ever we’re bringing a range of utterly stunning single malts with us this year and we can’t wait to share them.’ Lukasz Dynowiak, brand ambassador
