The Tullibardine Distillery buildings that are on site today were built around 1949 and were designed by William Delme-Evans. However, brewing and distilling have been done on this site since at least 1488, when it was recorded that beer from the brewery here was sent to King James IV at his coronation at Scone Palace. Tullibardine Distillery is currently owned by a group of businessmen who bought it from Whyte & MacKay in 2003. The distillery produces a large selection of single malt cask finishes and vintage bottlings.
