Three new vintages from Balblair

The latest vintages - 1990, 1983 and 2003 - from Balblair are being launched in the brand’s new premium front-opening gift boxes.

Balblair recently changed its 2003 Vintage packaging to a premium front opening box, replacing the regular top opening carton. All bottles (70cl) of Balblair whisky are now available in this style.

Curious Orange, an agency based in Glasgow, created the original packaging design, which is still constant throughout the range. Gillian Gibson, Balblair brand manager comments: “We have updated our youngest Vintage offering, this now means that the whole range of Balblair Vintages are presented in premium, front-opening gift boxes. We have done this to align the range; it is perfect timing and coincides with Christmas and the launch of the new Balblair 2003, 1990 and 1983 Vintages. Gifting whisky at Christmas is very popular and consumers want to gift a whisky that looks special. This bespoke packaging adds that special touch to the new Vintages.”

Established in 1790, Balblair is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and the oldest working distillery in the Highlands. The Balblair whiskies are exclusively vintage, distinguished by the year the whisky was laid down

The new range of Balblair vintage Highland single malt whiskies (46%abv natural colour non chill-filtered) comprises: Balblair 1990 second release RRP £84.99; Balblair 2003 first release RRP £40.99; and Balblair 1983 first release RRP £200.
