Before our lunch stop in Pitlochry on Wednesday, we visited the Blair Athol distillery. We got to tour the factory and learn about the production of whiskey. This used to be a small distillery, but demand has grown so much that they now produce whiskey on a 24/7 cycle. They have a warehouse that stores 40 million barrels of whiskey but have now outgrown that and are adding a warehouse that can store an additional 10 million barrels! After the tour, we got to try a 12 year old single malt aged in a sherry oak barrel. It was a little spicy with a vanilla finish. Drinking whiskey before lunch is starting to become a trend!
