Year Founded

Barrel Head


Edradour distillery, nestled in central Perthshire, Scotland, has a storied history dating back to 1837 when it began production at its present location. Throughout its history, Edradour changed hands several times. In 1933, the Mackintosh family sold it to William Whiteley, a renowned blending house. Later, the distillery found itself under the ownership of Irving Haim in a unique arrangement with the infamous Mafia boss Frank Costello. In 1982, Pernod Ricard subsidiary Campbell Distillers acquired Edradour and introduced it to visitors, ultimately launching it as a single malt in 1986.

In 2002, Pernod Ricard sold Edradour to Signatory Vintage, an independent bottler, which was an ideal match for the distillery. Under Signatory's ownership, Edradour expanded production to include the heavily peated variant known as Ballechin. The distillery remains a charming tourist attraction, known for its traditional equipment, open-top mash tun, wooden washbacks, and tiny stills leading to worm tubs.

The Edradour distillery produces a robust yet fruity whisky, often maturing it in ex-Sherry casks, fortified wine casks, and still wine casks for finishing. Ballechin, produced at the same facility, is favored for maturation in ex-Bourbon casks.
