Distillery Focus – Tullibardine
In 2003 Tullibardine was purchased from previous owners Whyte & Mackay by an independent consortium who swiftly brought it out of the mothballs in which it had resided since 1994. Although initial volumes were rather small, the newly-revived distillery is now approaching its not insignificant full capacity of over 2.5 million litres/year…
After a long period in which the only standard bottling of Tullibardine was the worthy but essentially dull 10 year-old, the new owners are pressing ahead with a Bruichladdich-esque business model, releasing a raft of (frequently wine-finished) bottlings from the back catalogue while their own new make is maturing for release in 2014. These releases are generally small batches of stock from a single vintage and most have been well-received.
Tullibardine casks are currently stored at Caley Casks. The distillery offers a value investment and continues to gain notoriety and prominence including picking up some awards for their Red Wine finishes. These casks offer an excellent entry point into cask Whisky investing from a well know Highland Distillery.
Casks are 2021 Bourbon Barrels priced at £3,000 with 5 years storage and insurance.
