The Marquess Collection, launched by the distillery in 2016, is a nod to famous historical figures who bore the Marquess of Tullibardine title in Scotland for centuries, and the rich history of the Tullibardine region.
The Murray name derives from the 2nd Marquess of Tullibardine, Sir William Murray, who fought for the Jacobites at the Battle of Sheriffmuir on the Ochil hills above the Tullibardine distillery.
Commenting on the launch, Mike Elliott, General Manager at Tullibardine Distillery, said: “We are extremely proud of each Murray we release as part of the Marquess Collection and the 2008 is no exception. Selected for its unique flavour profile and complexity, we knew this one was special. For us the wood is integral, this bottling has been aged for its full maturity in first-fill bourbon casks and those butterscotch and honeycomb notes are very much there. But there’s a real depth on the palate with a creamy mouthfeel and exceptional finish.”
Tullibardine – The Murray 2008, is now available from the distillery's online shop, for a RRP of £50.00.
