This latest release from the Highland based distillery, follows on from the multi award-winning ‘The Murray’ which was the first bottling in the collection named after Sir William Murray, the 2nd Marquess of Tullibardine,

Tullibardine - The Murray Chateauneuf-du-Pape Finish, is said to deliver an assortment of spicy and sweet aromas on the nose, bursting with flavours of juicy cherries and mint chocolate on the finish.

Commenting on the launch, Keith Geddes, Master Blender at Tullibardine Distillery, said: “The Murray Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a true example of our commitment to innovation here at the distillery. The Murray (2004) has been a huge success on a global level after winning three industry awards this year, and following a long process of experimentation and patience we’ve produced a delicious whisky which maintains the light characteristic of Tullibardine spirit, but is full of added complexity and depth as a result of using these classic French wine casks”.

Tullibardine - The Murray Chateauneuf-du-Pape Finish, will be available exclusively in Germany later this month, then rolled out globally early next year. RRP (tbc).
