Tullibardine Highland Malt Scotch whisky is generally recognised as an 'easy drinking' malt and an ideal pre-dinner appetiser. It is smooth and mellow on the palate with a fruity flavour and has a clean crisp finish. On nosing, Tullibardine provides the recipient with a fresh, floral scent with hints of vanilla and chocolate orange. Distilled from the purest Highland spring water, Tullibardine's qualities make it an ideal introductory malt Scotch whisky and is described as 'eminently quaffable'.
Tullibardine Distillery is situated in the village of Blackford in Perthshire and lies on the site of Scotland's oldest brewery dating back to the twelfth century. The village of Blackford was given the name as far back as the 10th century when the wife of the Nordic King Magnus, reputedly fell off her horse and drowned while crossing a 'ford' in the area. The tragedy was said to have deeply affected the king and the area was referred to hereafter as 'black ford' or as it is now known as Blackford. A mound, which can be seen from the grounds of the distillery, reputedly depicts where Queen Helen was buried and is known locally within the village as 'deaf knowe' due to the fact that if someone shouts from one side of the hill they cannot be heard on the other side.
