Description

One of Scotlands oldest working distilleries; Blair Athol is located in the picturesque Highland town of Pitlochry. Drawing its water from the Allt Dour Burn (burn of the otter), Blair Athol was established in 1798. At that time the

distillery was named Aldour - after the water source. The new venture did not last long, however, probably due to the heavy excise on malt whisky levied by the government, so the distillery closed. In 1826 it was revitalised by Alexander Connacher, before being taken over by MacKenzie company. In 1933 Blair Athol was acquired by Arthur Bell & Sons who are now a subsidiary of Diageo.

In 1987 a visitor centre opened which welcomes whisky enthusiasts throughout the year.
