Book a tour

It’s good to be back.

We want to start by saying thank you. By staying home, together, we have made a difference.

We are delighted to announce that our distillery shop is now open from Monday to Friday from 10am – 4pm.  As we and the world experience the new ‘normal’, we want to stress that the welfare of our team and you, our customers, is always our main priority.

We want to ensure that our distillery shop remains a safe place, and so we ask that you review the information below before visiting and continue to follow all social distancing guidance given by the government.  Please also note that tours, whisky tastings and our hand bottling experience at the distillery remain suspended although we are pleased to confirm that our exclusive distillery single cask will now be bottled safely by our staff and available for purchase in the distillery shop for those seeking an extra special memento from their visit to the distillery.

Warmest regards,

Balblair Distillery
