History:

Tullibardine distillery was established in 1949, producing a single malt whisky. The whisky distillery is located in Blackford, Perth and Kinross, close to the Ochil Hills and the Danny Burn, their main water sources.[1][2]

The distillery was mothballed in 1995 by then owner Whyte & Mackay. In 2003, it was sold to Tullibardine Distillery Ltd, who resumed production.[3][4] In 2011, the distillery was sold to the French firm Picard Vins & Spiritueux.[5]

The distillery produces several types of single malt whisky,[6] including “Aged Oak Edition Single Malt Whisky” and “Sherry Finish Malt Whisky”, and related liqueurs.[7]
