The whisky is a blend of five malt and grain whiskies, sourced from five different distilleries. Located at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, in the town of Pitlochry, Perthshire, Blair Athol distillery sits, home to Arthur Bell & Sons. The four other distilleries include Inchgower-Speyside, Dufftown-Speyside, Glenkinchie-Lowland and Caol ila-Islay. The 2005 decanter tells the story of the old bell of Saint Etienne church at Sens, Burgundy. The bell was removed by Clotaire II, king of France, and carted to Paris.
