Tutored Whisky Tasting at Tullibardine Distillery, Scotland.

This morning we departed our lodgings in Stirling and drove about one mile to Stirling Bridge which dates from the 16th century and which acts as proxy for the wooden bridge over the River Forth which was at the centre of a battle in 1297 between the English and Scots where latter prevailed under generalship of William Wallace.

Next, a couple of miles to the nearby Wallace Monument which dates from 1869 and was built to commemorate Scots hero William Wallace, aka ‘Braveheart’. This structure affords superb views over Stirling and the local landscape.

Next to Tullibardine Distillery at Blackford where we arrived in time for a connoisseur at 12.00 noon. This lasted about ninety minutes and covered an escorted tour of the distillery culminating in a tutored tasting of four single malts complemented with chocolates.
