Blair Athol distillery
Blair Athol distillery is located in Pitlochry. Its neighbour is the Edradour distillery a few miles up the road from Blair Athol. This distillery was founded in 1798 but closed down soon after. It was revived in 1825, soon after the Excise Act 1823, and operated almost continuously until 1932 when it was mothballed again. It wasn't until 1949 that the distillery started distilling whisky once more. Production capacity was expanded in 1973 and in 1998 its parent company merged with International Distillers and Vintners effectively bringing the distillery under the Diageo umbrella. These days the distillery has a visitor centre and it is easily accessible from the A9 which connects the Highlands with Perthshire, Scotland.
