Whisky, like bread, is made from grain and yeast, but local authorities get very angry when people feed either of them to pigeons. Wake up and smell the barley with today’s Groupon: £38 for a whisky tasting tour for two, plus lunch, afternoon tea and a gift bag, at Tullibardine Distillery.
Built on the site of Scotland’s oldest brewery, dating back to the twelfth century, Tullibardine Distillery’s single malt whisky is imbued with a heady dose of history alongside its flavoursome goodness. Still using pure spring water from the Ochil Hills, the establishment has retained a sense of preservation, demonstrated in the use of traditional distillation machinery and the selection of the finest casks to smoothly age the caramel nectar. The distillery has been making whisky in this incarnation since 2003, and in 2004 opened its doors to the whisky-curious public. A new visitor’s centre and café (named 1488 after the year King James IV purchased beer from the original brewery) entices with a shop brimming with Scottish souvenirs and produce. The café is a peaceful place to enjoy victuals and views, and it holds an alcohol licence to keep the cockles warm.
A tour of Tullibardine Distillery will whet whisky appetites as visitors are shown the traditional computer-free distillation technology this establishment favours. The secrets of the tasting room will be revealed in a sensory lesson – a “nosing”- and the tasting of five Tullibardine single malts. Tipsy tasters can return to earth with a warming afternoon tea at Café 1488, chomping on sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, and slurping on hot soup and tea or coffee. Happy memories of the day will be bagged to take home, along with a Glencairn nosing glass and a 21 year old 5cl Tullibardine single malt whisky miniature.
The Tullibardine Distillery scores a well-brewed 4/5 on TripAdvisor. Visitors mostly seemed to appreciate the sights and sounds of a working distillery.
It was a good well organised tour with alot [sic] to see and even the children are able to get involved.

As the distillery was actually working the smells and sounds gave us the full experience.
