Blair Athol Distillery

Blair Athol is an attractive distillery with old stone walls, some clad in ivy. It was established in 1798 and it is a short walk from Pitlochry town centre. One of the most popular blended whiskies in Scotland is Bell’s and Blair Athol is a key constituent. However, Blair Athol is a little known but memorable single malt in its own right.

The Blair Athol 12 year old is part of a range known as Flora and Fauna. This range of single malts showcases some lesser known distilleries. Each distillery label has a picture of an animal or plant and it was this that inspired the whisky writer Michael Jackson to “nickname” the range Flora and Fauna. In Blair Athol’s case an otter is depicted, inspired by its water source, The Allt Dour (Otter) Burn.
