One of the less well-known distilleries, Tullibardine is situated on the site of a former brewery at Blackford in Perthshire, making one of a handful of South Highland distilleries.
Tullibardine was mothballed for years until 2003 and has produced an ever-changing range of malts since. Some of the more recent ones use a number that denotes the size of the cask it was matured in (225 litres in this instance). This expression was “second” matured in a Sauternes wine cask from Chateau Suduiraut.
