Tullibardine 1488 Whisky Ale

Introducing our award winning and first ever genuine whisky ale!

There is more to us than just whisky. Our Tullibardine 1488 whisky ale is a unique brew designed to reflect the original character of the beer which was once produced at our brewery site in Perthshire.

The ale is brewed at the Bridge of Allan distillery which has been recognised for the quality of its beers and ale. We felt this was a perfect product to add to our range as our distillery is in fact built on the site of the brewery where King James IV stopped off to collect his ale in 1488, as the area was well noted for the excellence of its ale

We taken our award winning Milestone Ale, and aged it in an Arran Malt Whisky Casks which were previous used for making Bourbon, making a distinctive Special Reserve for this year with a sweet edge to it. Special Reserve is available in 750ml Champaign style bottles to finish off the presentation of this truly special beer.




Dark Island Reserve - An Extraordinary Ale.

The idea behind the Dark Island Reserve was to create a super-premium, unique and special beer that set new standards in Britain in quality of product and packaging. Since it’s won the packaging industry award for presentation, I think we can say we are achieving our aims.

Using our iconic Dark Island Ale, which is then matured in aged Orkney malt whisky casks for three months, gives this bottled ale a new dimension.

The markets for Dark Island Reserve are quite exclusive and shall remain so as our production is deliberately limited. Retailers, deli’s and off licenses which specialise in their field will stock this exciting new product.

The bottle size of 75cl and its’ 10% alcohol by volume means this ale is designed to be savoured.

Each bottle is hand bottled and labeled with the individual Gyle number. Classic Dark Island flavours of smooth roast malt, dark chocolate, caramel, figs and dates combine with vanilla, spice and bitter orange flavours from the wood and whisky.

The front label depicts an etching of the famous Orkney Standing Stones and includes the short description – DARK ISLAND RESERVE The Extraordinary Orcadian Ale. Dark Island Reserve is a rich strong Orcadian ale. After a gentle fermentation at our brewery in Quoyloo, the beer is finished in old oak casks formerly used to mature fine malt whisky. This unhurried process creates a timeless classic full of fruit, spice, oak and roast malt flavours.

Each label is finished, as with the entire Orkney range, with the signature of Andrew Fulton our Head Brewer.

If you are looking for an ale to savour or the perfect gift for a real ale fan then this is the very thing.
