Whisky Distilleries in Pitlochry

Pitlochry is fortunate to have two Whisky Distilleries on its doorstep,

Blair Athol Distillery and Edradour Distillery.  

Both distilleries can easily be toured in a day and both are within walking distance from Craigatin House and Courtyard.

Blair Athol single malt Distillery stands at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands her in Pitlochry.  It was established in 1798, and Blair Athol is one of the oldest working distilleries in the country.   The distillery produces a 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky, with a mellow deep-toned aroma, a strong fruity flavour and a smooth finish. Blair Athol wins hearts through its contribution to the Bell’s Blend, the most popular blended whisky in the U.K.   Adult admission charge of £6.50 includes a discount voucher, redeemable in our well stocked distillery shop towards the purchase of a 70cl bottle of malt whisky.  Free car parking available.  Last tour one hour before closing times. Please telephone in advance to confirm tour times.

Edradour Distillery is one of the smallest Distilleries in Scotland.  Edradour makes in a year what Blair Atholl makes in a week to give you some idea.  If you have been to the Edradour distillery it is easy to understand why it is so popular with visitors. Being one the smallest and most picturesque distilleries in Scotland it’s a must for visitors on the whisky trail, however it also offers a lot more.   It’s a charming place in the foothill above Pitlochry where the people are genuinely warm and hospitable, the landscape glorious and the lifestyle untouched by the perils of the twentieth century.
