This weekend we are taking a trip to Scotland for a two day whisky experience with our clients, one of the stops on this whirlwind tour is the prestigious Tullibardine distillery. Among our cask investors, Tullibardine is a popular cask choice due to its unique profile and rich history.
The Tullibardine distillery is located in the Ochil Hills, known as the gateway to the Highlands, standing on a 400 million year old lava escarpment from Scotland’s antediluvian past. It is this unique geological feature that creates the high quality of Tullibardine, due to the high quality of the spring from which the distillery draws its water. In fact Tullibardine shares the same source as the Highland Spring water bottling plant.
The Tullibardine distillery is owned by a distinguished French vinter family company, Maison Michel Picard. This gives Tullibardine unprecedented access to some of the highest quality Burgundy and Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet casks, for the scotch to mature in.
Careful management by its parent company has led to Tullibardine building a reputation for excellence with an extremely refined profile whose prestige and French heritage has made it one of the more popular single malts in Western Europe. This growing popularity has led to the Tullibardine investing heavily in not only production but also a new visitors centre and tourist facilities to meet the demand.
At Hackstons we cannot express how excited we are to visit this outstanding distillery and look forward to learning more about their unique distillation process.
