Balblair, the renowned Highland single malt Scotch distillery, famous for its unrivalled collection of extraordinary single malts, has just unveiled its crowning jewel: the highly anticipated release of their 21-year-old expression.
This permanent addition to the Balblair portfolio represents the pinnacle of their craftsmanship with six years of further maturation in Spanish oak barrels. 21 Year Old embodies a symphony of traditional methods, unparalleled flavour profiles, and an unprecedented level of refinement, making it their most harmonious creation to date.
Founded in 1790, Balblair is the oldest working distillery in the true heart of the northern Scottish Highlands, set in a stunning, unspoilt rural idyll, near to the banks of the beautiful Dornoch Firth.
Drawing inspiration from its surroundings, Balblair 21 Year Old is a true reflection of its terroir. Every sip reveals the essence of locally sourced, spring water, infused with the captivating influence of hand-selected oak casks carefully chosen to accentuate the whisky’s complexity.
This harmonious fusion ensures an extraordinary drinking experience that will be treasured by seasoned whisky connoisseurs and passionate enthusiasts alike.
Commenting on the launch of Balblair 21 Year Old, John MacDonald, Balblair’s distillery manager, said “Balblair’s 21 Year Old is the culmination of our commitment to craftsmanship and the timeless art of whisky-making.
“From the moment the spirit touches the cask until it reaches full maturity, every detail is carefully nurtured, resulting in a remarkable whisky that flawlessly captures the essence of Balblair.”
Balblair 21 Year Old will be available in limited quantity across the UK from late September 2023, before rolling out to other markets including Europe, North America and Asia in the coming months.
