Tullibardine has revamped their core offering and introduced Tullibardine Sovereign Single Malt — classic, fruit-forward Highland Single Malt perfect for your daily dram.

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 IV — a young, strapping man — stopped in to the local brewery here on the way to his coronation. The old brewery was transformed into a distillery back in 1946 and has become a solid maker of Single Malt Whisky. After a brief closing in 1995, it was brought back to life in 2003 — and we’re all pretty happy about that. They produce a wide range of aged Single Malts, several finished "double-wood" Whiskies, and some older limited editions — any of them a solid and approachable daily dram.

Since acquiring the Tullibardine Distillery in 2011, Picard Vins & Spiritueux has been working hard to refine the product line and raise the profile of the classic Highland Spirit. Tullibardine Sovereign is the core of their Signature series and evidence of that successful effort. This Single Malt is made in copper pot stills and aged in first-fill Bourbon casks. And although there is no official age statement, this dram clocks in at a minimum of five years and is bottled at 43% ABV.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Tullibardine Sovereign taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Tullibardine Sovereign and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
