Bladnoch unveils 30-year-old single malt whisky

Scotch whisky distillery Bladnoch has launched a 30-year-old whisky, its oldest to date since the distillery was bought and revived in 2015.

The new single malt whisky has been matured in a combination of oloroso sherry and moscatel casks, which the distillery says gives the liquid notes of Seville orange, marzipan and dried apricots.

Bottled at 45.5% ABV without chill filtration and with natural colour, the Bladnoch 30 Years Old will be released in a limited run of 950 bottles.

Bladnoch master distiller Dr Nick Savage said: "Our 30-year-old was designed to showcase the pinnacle of our range with the unique combination of oloroso and moscatel casks. This unique cask combination, rarity, and character will inspire our future whisky making for many years."

The 205-year-old Lowland distillery had been mothballed when it was bought by Australian entrepreneur David Prior in 2015.

On the 30-year-old's launch, Prior said: "It is an immense privilege to release this 30-year-old single malt,  produced from Bladnoch's heritage whisky and matured in these stunning rare casks. This continues an exciting chapter in Bladnoch's rich whisky-making history as we continue to develop our portfolio."

Bottles can be purchased at the distillery visitor centre, online at, or internationally through Bladnoch's distributors in the coming months.
