MM Distillery profile:
Blair Athol is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, founded in 1798 by John Stewart and Robert Robertson near the picturesque little town of Pitlochry. The young Blair Athol distillery was closed not long afterwards, however - until it was revived again by John Robertson in 1825/'26. It ran continuously for a decade after that....
