BLAIR ATHOL 12 YEAR OLD FLORA & FAUNA 1ST EDITION
HIGHLAND SINGLE MALT

43% ABV / 70cl

Despite being situated in the small town of Pitlochry, Blair Athol distillery is named after another town about seven miles further north. There is some speculation that this was done to ingratiate the distillery with the Duke of Athol who owned the land the distillery was built on.
As with so many other distilleries, Blair Athol couldn’t weather the storm of The Great Depression and closed its doors in 1930. During this period of silence the distillery was acquired by Arthur Bell & Sons who reopened it in 1949. Today it still provides the heart of the Bell’s blend.
