There are reports of brewing and distilling on the site where Tullibardine now stands from 1488. The modern era of this distillery however, dates to 1947, when William Delme Evans began converting the original brewery buildings that remained into a distillery, and in 1949 the first spirit was distilled at the newly named Tullibardine Distillery. The name in Gaelic means ‘lookout hill’, and was taken from the small medieval chapel built in 1446, which is close to the distillery.
In 1953 the distillery was sold to Brodie Hepburn, who were themselves later sold to Invergordon Distillers. For the next few decades production continued using the original two stills and maturing the spirit in sherry casks. In 1973 the capacity was increased with the addition of two more stills.
Recently Tullibardine began a new chapter in its history. In November 2011 the distillery was purchased by an independent family company already involved in the Whisky Industry. With a wide portfolio of stock ranging back as far as 1952, the current owners have quite a depth and range of whiskys to play with.
