Balblair是苏格兰最古老的蒸馏厂之一(从1790年来算它是第二老的蒸馏厂),最早的记载,Balblair可以追溯回1749年,现今的Balblair成立于1790年,它曾经在第二次世界大战时从1915~1947休厂了一段时间,后来又重新开始运转生产独立酒厂威士忌,直到1970卖給了Hiram Walker,它们将Balblair当作是百龄坛(Ballentine)調和式威士忌的基酒,所以Balblair的味道是属于饱满,麦芽香气重,酒体平衡的酒,这也是为了成为調和威士忌的基酒,所演化來的酒体特质,1996年Balblair被Inver House买了下来,并计划让它重新回到其独立酒厂的身份,換句话说就是回归到裝自己的单一麦芽酒,并且回到过去比较浓重的泥煤味道的酒体,也是这家酒厂早期传统的作法。

    Balblair是一家风景优美的蒸馏厂,它和另一家酒厂Speyburn号称是Highland最美的两家酒厂。


    如今Balblair专注于单一麦芽酒的制作,并回归到传统的味道,这几年Balblair出版了好几款老年份的裝瓶,有31年,33年,38年,竟有令人出乎意料的表現!!!难怪百龄坛30年一向在高年份的调和威士忌有著帝王般的表現, 或许这其中有着Balblair重大的贡献吧。
 
    在同时代的古老品牌中,巴布莱尔获得了更高的殊荣,特别是他按照类似葡萄酒的做法为威士忌标注制造年期的创新做法更得到认同。而对于这个品牌的综合评价是:它的卓越表现不仅在于它显著的外表,更在于它给人们的鼻息奉献出来的香草,太妃糖和水果的完美组合的味道。
 
Founded in 1790 Balblair is the second oldest working distillery in Scotland. It is situated on the Dornoch firth, one of the most stunning scenic areas of Scotland. The area is known as the 'parish of the peats' whilst the name Balblair means battlefield or town of the plain. John Ross founded the distillery and ran
it as a thriving business until in 1817 he was sequestrated however this did not stop him and in 1824 was joined by his son Andrew in the family business. The distillery stayed in the Ross family until in 1894 when the tenancy was taken over by Alexander Cowan. In 1948 the freehold was bought by Mr. Robert Cumming who promptly expanded the distillery and increased production. Mr. Cumming ran the distillery until 1970 when he sold it to what became Allied distillers, for the first time in its history Balblair was not owned by local businessmen. In 1996 Balblair was purchased Inver House Distillers.

The distillery itself is a two pot still capable of producing approximately 1.4 million liters of whisky a year. The water
is drawn from the Ault Dearg burn which originates in the Struie hill.
Today the Ross legacy of the area lives on as four out of the seven current employees share the surname Ross.
