A Breif History of Tullibardine
12th Century – The brewing of beer begins
A pure and plentiful supply of spring water streaming off the nearby Ochil Hills – recognised for its purity and quality – was to put Blackford on the map for a different reason. It was to become associated with the making of beer and was the site of the first public brewery in Scotland. The village could boast of having no less than 3 breweries operating at one time, all drawing water from the same source.
15th Century – A Coronation beer
In year 1488, King James IV purchased beer from the brewery, which stood on the site of the now Tullibardine Distillery following his coronation at Scone. James IV was to become one of the best-known late medieval Scottish rulers and ruled for 25 years eventually being slain at the battle of Flodden on the 9th September 1513.
20th Century – Tullibardine becomes first distillery in 20th century
In 1947, a Welshman by the name of William Delme Evans purchased the brewery with a view to converting it to a distillery. Delme Evans was an engineer to trade and designed the distillery to maximise efficiency initially using nature, and latterly science, where necessary. The distillery was built under very difficult circumstances as material was under licence and building and construction work at that time was subject to severe building controls. However, in 1949, Tullibardine distillery produced spirit for the first time and ran under Delme Evans ownership until 1953 where failing health forced him to sell it to the company of Brodie Hepburn.
21st Century – Decommission and Recommissioned
The distillery lay dormant until the June of 2003 when it was bought along with the existing stock of Tullibardine whisky. In the December of 2003, Tullibardine distillery once again fired up the boiler and spirit flowed from the stills for the first time in nearly nine years. Throughout the re-commissioning process, care was taken to maintain as many of the traditional methods of production as possible and utilise the skills of the distillery manager and operators in producing the Tullibardine spirit.
