According to the distillery the name Ballechin originates from a fellow Perthshire farm distillery, which sadly closed in 1927. There, Alfred Barnard, who catalogued all the distilleries in the UK in the 1880's, made reference to having experienced a peated whisky. This bottling is predominantly from ex-bourbon casks with a generous top dressing of ex-Oloroso sherry casks to create added depth and greater complexity.
