Distillery::

The history of Tullibardine for distilling and brewing is one of the oldest in Scotland.  Located in Blackford, the gateway to the Highlands, it was here in 1488 that the young King James IV of Scotland stopped by on his way to his coronation to purchase beer from the local brewery.  This is recorded as the first public purchase of beer.
As well as the easy access from the north and south, making it a perfect location for stilling, there is also a plentiful supply of fresh spring water from the surrounding Ochil hills, which are also well known for the fold that was mined from them.  The water that reaches the distillery has taken 15 years to reach the Danny Burn, which is the spring supplying the distillery.
In 1947 the brewery was converted to a distillery, and was named after the small medieval chapel close to the distillery, which was built in 1446.  Tullibardine mean “lookout hill” in Gaelic.
With a wide portfolio of stock ranging back as far as 1952, Tullibardine is a lovely sweet, elegant and complex malt whisky.

“We are getting to the stage where Tullibardine is now becoming one of the true great single malts of Scotland”  Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2008.

Statement of age::

DISTILLED 2007 – BOTTLED 2019

Blending::

This is the sixth edition of the Tullibardine Marquess Collection.
There have been famous historical figures bearing the title the Marquess of Tullibardine for centuries.

The 2nd Marquess of Tullibardine, Sir William Murray fought for the Jacobites at the Battle of Sherrifmuir on the hills above the distillery. In 1745 he was chosen by Bonnie Prince Charlie to unfurl the Royal Standard at Glenfinnan announcing the Prince as the rightful King.

To acknowledge this connection with the past we decided to name our new whisky after Sir William Murray.
