Tullibardine adds to Custodians Collection

Tullibardine Distillery has released a single malt whisky into its Custodians Collection, Tullibardine 1962.
The release joins the Tullibardine 1952 and 1970 to form the brand’s Custodians collection.
Tullibardine 1962 is the contents of the Perthshire distillery’s last two casks of the malt distilled on 27 December 1962.
Only 250 bottles will be available and Tullibardine 1962 retails at £1,990.  
The whisky has matured in American Oak casks for 52 years. The Custodians Collection includes the oldest and rarest whisky released by the distillery, Tullibardine 1952, and Tullibardine 1970, which received the Whisky Magazine Editor’s Choice award.
John Torrance, distillery manager at Tullibardine Distillery, says: “This is truly a very special release for the brand and distillery, and one which is precious to us here at Tullibardine. The 1962 makes up a trio of limited and sought-after malts, which are amongst the finest in the world. We hope that our customers join us to celebrate this historic release.’
Keith Geddes, master blender at Tullibardine, says: “The Tullibardine 1962 is a work of art, capturing the essence of Tullibardine and the effects of the surrounding environment. This is reflected in this special release, which following a lot of patience has blossomed to become a complex and luxurious whisky.”
Ownership of one of the Custodians expressions comes with a lifetime membership to the Tullibardine Custodians Club. To find out more about the Club and Custodians Collection, visit
