Tullibardine has somewhat been regarded as one of the more unfashionable distilleries in Scotland and while the official bottlings have not captured the imagination as much as one would have liked, it is no slouch when it comes to producing good quality whisky. This expression was distilled in 2014, matured in a first fill Oloroso hogshead for its entire life before being bottled at an eye-wateringly high natural cask strength of 65.5% abv by The Single Cask. The results, they say, speak for itself.
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Packaging: All our bottles are shipped in a specialist anti-shock 'air tubes'. These create a sleeve of air around the bottle to keep it safe and protected while in the post. The air tubes are then places in discreet, plain, cardboard outer boxes.
