Old Tullymet Blended Scotch Whisky takes its name from its spiritual home – Tullymet Highland Single Malt Distillery. Founded in 1812, and originally known as Auchnagie Distillery, it was re-named Tullymet in 1890. Tullymet had a low key existence, mainly supplying local whisky merchants with bulk malt whisky.
Suddenly, Tullymet found itself a key malt component of a world famous Blended Scotch. Its small stills struggled to meet soaring demand, causing its closure in 1911. Nonetheless it earned a reputation for the exceptionally high quality of its whisky. That reputation lives on today, with this Old Tullymet blend containing a high proportion of single malt whisky and aged for a minimum of 3 years in oak barrels for a smooth finish.
