About Balmenach Distillery

Balmenach Distillery was established in 1824 by James McGregor. It is situated in the Cromdale district on the banks of the River Spey, beneath Tom Lethendry, the site of the 1690 Battle of Cromdale where the Jacobites were defeated. As one of the earliest distilleries to be legalised by the Excise Act of 1823, Balmenach has a rich history. In 1897, the distillery was purchased by Glenlivet and was connected by its own railway branch to the Strathspey Railway until 1969. The distillery closed during World War II in 1941 and reopened in 1947 after expanding its facilities.

Today, Balmenach Distillery is owned by Inver House Distillers. The distillery’s historical significance and continued production make it a notable entity within the Scotch whisky industry.

Balmenach 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.
