Third vintage of Balblair 1989 released

Published:  19 March, 2012

International Beverage Holdings has unveiled the third release of the 1989 vintage of Balblair Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

As with the 2001 vintage, which was launched in November 2011, the expression is non-chill-filtered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46% abv.

It has traditional production methods and is presented in new, higher quality packaging.

The third release of Balblair 1989 (rrp £60) has been matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels.

Andy Hannah, brand manager, says: "Balblair has become established as a favourite of discerning whisky drinkers worldwide.

"As well as being the only distillery solely releasing vintage malts, the contemporary packaging design sets it apart.

"This has been further updated with the third release of the Balblair 1989 Vintage, the first to appear in a new, higher-quality box, which will become the standard for new bottlings, at 15mm narrower than before, it is smaller and greener."

"Balblair 1989 has been a very popular vintage and this will be its final release."

It will be on general sale but the focus will be on the UK, France and Russian markets.
