The history of Tullibardine as a location for brewing and distilling is one of the oldest in Scotland. Located in Blackford, the gateway to the Highlands, it was here in 1488 the young King James the 4th of Scotland was the first member of the public to stop and purchase beer. A small boutique Highland Malt distillery completely hand produced with a very approachable house style - floral, sweet, fruity and malt driven. Purposely limited in volume. Tullibardine owes its character in part to its outstanding spring water supply from the Ochil Hills formed more than 400 million years ago - rich in basalt and red sandstone. The water is collected from the Danny Burn (the same water bottled by the renowned Scottish mineral water company, Highland Spring). Designed as a purpose built distillery by legendary distillery designer William Delme Evans (Jura and Glenallachie).
We are very proud to be one of the few remaining independent distilleries in Scotland.
In our whiskies, we use only the finest ingredients of malted barley, yeast and water, which are all sourced locally. In fact, the water sourced to produce the whisky is from the Ochil hills of Perthshire, which are renowned for their crystal purity and also where The Highland Spring water company source their water.
We are also very specific about the casks in which the spirit matures with each of our whisky casks being specially selected by our whisky professionals which are then carefully checked by our master distiller John Black, who having celebrated over 50 years in the whisky industry is a key member of the team at Tullibardine.
