About Balblair Distillery

Balblair Distillery, situated in Edderton, Ross-shire, has a rich history dating back to its founding in 1790. Rebuilt in 1895 by Charles C. Doig to be closer to Edderton Railway Station, the distillery chose to maintain its original water source from the Ault Dearg burn. 

Initially run by founder John Ross and later his son Andrew, the distillery changed hands over the years, eventually being acquired by Inver House Distillers Limited in 1996. 

Balblair boasts one of the oldest archives in distilling, with ledger entries dating back to 1800. Transitioning from vintage releases to a core range of age statement whiskies in 2019, including 12, 15, 18, 21, and 25-year-old expressions, the distillery has garnered attention, including a feature in the Ken Loach film The Angels’ Share.

Balblair is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
