Tullibardine 20 Year is a pure, perfectly aged, unadulterated bottle of Highland single-malt love. 

If we set out to find the oldest brewing and distilling spot in Scotland, Tullibardine would definitely be in the running. Back in the 15th century, King James IVa young, strapping lad—made a stop at the local brewery here on the way to his coronation. Heck, wouldn't you? This is recorded as the first "official" purchase of beer in kingdom (though we think it fair to say that there were quite a few "unofficial" purchases being made at the time). The name Tullibardine means "vantage point" in Gaelic and originates from a little medieval chapel, set up in 1446 near the distillery. 
 
The old brewery was transformed into a distillery back in about 1946 and has become a solid maker of single-malt Whisky. They produce their signature 10-year, several finished "double-wood" Whiskies, and some older limited editions. 

The formula for producing Tullibardine 20 Year comes right out of the basics. They take their fine Highland single-malt spirit, place it gently into first-fill ex-Bourbon casks … and then wait 20 years. Seems so simple, right? I mean, why doesn’t everyone do it? 
 
While perfect distillation is an art—and we take nothing away from those master craftsman, God love ‘em! But these days the hardest part of making a great Whisky can be getting away from all of the marketing flacks and optimization Nazis who want to maximize volume and increase storage efficiency. Tullibardine 20 Year Old does exactly that… It’s a pure, perfectly aged, unadulterated bottle of Highland single-malt love.

Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
