Gordon & MacPhail Blair Athol 9YO 2006-15 700ml

One of Scotland's 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; the distillery itself was named after its water source, 'Aldour'. The new venture did not last long however, probably due to the heavy excise on malt whisky levied by the government, thus 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 was opened which welcomes whisky enthusiasts throughout the year.
