The Story of  Tullibardine


The history of Tullibardine as a location for brewing and distilling is one of the oldest in Scotland, dating back to the 15th Century. The story begins in 1488, when a young King James, IV of Scotland, stopped by before his coronation to purchase beer from the local brewery. This brewery was known for producing fine beer as a result of the local water source. By 1503, the King had granted them a Royal Charter


It was in 1947 that William Delmé-Evans began converting this original brewery into the Tullibardine Distillery. Upon testing the water from the nearby springs, Delmé-Evans knew he had found the perfect location for distilling whisky.

Once the whisky has been distilled, maturation takes place in first fill ex bourbon casks to create Tullibardine Sovereign.


With the addition of o bottling plant, Tullibardine is now one of the few distilleries in Scotland to distill, mature and bottle all on site, giving complete control over the process. Only first fill casks to impart maximum flavour and colour.

 

First fill 225 litre Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Casks are re-casked with Tullibardine Sovereign for further maturation. This is important as during the whisky making process, up to 70% of the flavour and colour will come from the wood
