Tullibardine The Murray Marsala Finish Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Scotland :: UK
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.

Deep Pinkish Golder Amber
Subtly dry, slightly spicy oaky aromas combine with hints of fragrant floral meadows and freshly picked summer berries. The addition of water releases aromas of fresh strawberries drizzled with vanilla ice-cream, milk chocolate and hints of parma violets.
Luscious summer fruit jam combine with hints of black coffee and tongue tingling dried spice. Water releases creamy toffee, malted biscuits with chewy strawberry candy and freshly washed blackcurrants.
Creamy orange flavours evolve and linger gently on the tongue.
