Balblair’s 1999 vintage third release. This Highland Scotch whisky was aged in a unique and interesting combination of American oak, ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish oak ex-sherry butts. Balblair is owned by the InverHouse distillers, which was bought by Robert ‘Bertie’ Cumming in 1948 after years of staying under the radar. Bertie expanded and modernised the distillery with a contemporary visitor centre that offers an excellent tour which highlights the distillery role in Ken Loach’s 2012 movie ‘The Angels’ Share’. Balblair is also committed to reduce its ecological footprint and have changed from oil to gas, perhaps marking a new era for distilleries around the world, now who wouldn’t want to take part of this historic and remarkable change?

About Glenbotal

The idea of Glenbotal came to us organically: as whisky lovers, we were always on the lookout for new experiences in the whisky world. But when we were interested in trying something new to stretch our palates, buying the whole bottle was too much of a commitment for us. What if we don’t like it? What would we do with the rest of the bottle?

That’s why we created Glenbotal and became our very own first customers. We buy bottles from auctions, ballots, and private collections then share them with a small circle of friends and people who can appreciate a good dram.
