In the lovely Scottish Highlands town of Pitlochry is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland, the Blair Athol Distillery, originally founded in 1798. In addition to its popular blended whisky, Blair Athol produces a 12-year-old Single Malt Whisky using an ancient source of water which flows through the grounds of the distillery from the slopes of the Grampian Mountains. You can sample the distinctive whisky at the conclusion of an informative guided tour of this beautiful facility.
