TBWC comments on the label;
“Blair Athol, a distillery at the heart of several of the world’s favourite blended whiskies. Cuz everyone has their calling in life, whether it’s selecting casks, bottling said casks, playing banjo with
your butt or mastering “topiary” (shrub clipping), as the fellow on the label clearly has. Live your best life”
About Blair Athol Distillery;
Blair Athol Distillery stands at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands in the picturesque town of Pitlochry, Perthshire. Blair Athol’s ancient source of water – the Allt Dour, flows through the grounds from the slopes of Ben Vrackie, contributing to the whisky’s, mellow quality and smooth finish. Cloudy worts and a short fermentation time give the nutty base, but it is distillation which adds real weight to the distillate. Around 95% of Blair Athol’s malt whisky is aged in bourbon barrels and goes into Diageo’s Bell’s blend, which has owned the distillery since 1933.
