BLADNOCH DISTILLERY WHISKY MINIATURES
Spirit of the Lowlands
When you buy a miniature bottle of Bladnoch whisky, it’s not just any old whisky – you're investing in a wee bit of Galloway.
With a history dating back to 1817 our whisky is as unique as the water we draw from the River Bladnoch and use to produce it. It may well have been distilled by stillman John who commenced working here over 25 years ago, Hugh more recently, but like everyone here, over the intervening years it will have matured nicely.
Labelling is done by Yolanda or Janis using a label carefully created by Sue or Hazel.
If you're lucky enough to have spent some time in this little known part of Scotland and to have visited the distillery you'll recognise the team effort involved and that the personalities mentioned above, represent almost our entire workforce.
It is in the nature of Bladnoch that we work with single casks and small numbers. A limited edition label is more likely to be 250 than the 250000 common to larger distilleries, so there's an element of rarity. The miniatures when bottled are left unlabelled until required, so for example, in 2003, when a visitor asked – “Could you make a miniature label with a butterfly on it for me?” – it wasn't a problem – and thus the most recent series of collectable Bladnoch Miniatures began and continues to expand.
The range has extended to include an annual Wigtown Booktown bottle, Bladnoch Rugby Quaich, Lowlanders Scooter Rally, Christmas Bottles and an infinite number of special orders for events and businesses worldwide. We have bottles that have celebrated engagements, weddings, birthdays and retirements. We’ve supplied mini-bottles for military dinners and agricultural gatherings, Burns Suppers and tourism events, even for corporate advertising and hotels.
The Homecoming Scotland 2009 has offered the opportunity to celebrate the life of Robert Burns with a series of 12 monthly miniatures based on the Bard’s poetry.
