Tullibardine distillery is a Scottish distillery since 1949, producing a single malt whisky. The whisky distillery is located in Blackford, Perth and Kinross, close to the Ochil Hills and the Danny Burn, their main water sources.[1][2]

The distillery was mothballed in 1995 by then owner Whyte & Mackay. In 2003, it was sold to Tullibardine Distillery Ltd, who resumed production.[3][4] In 2011, the distillery was sold to the French firm Picard Vins & Spiritueux.[5] This firm in 2013 creates an entity for the spirits named Terroirs Distillers. [6]

The distillery produces several types of single malt whisky,[7] including "Aged Oak Edition Single Malt Whisky" and "Sherry Finish Malt Whisky", and related liqueurs.[8]

Tullibardine Distillery runs a visitor's centre.[9]
