A ROYAL wedding gift honouring Prince William and his new wife TRH, The Earl and Countess of Strathearn, is on display at Tullibardine distillery.
Says a spokesperson: “To mark the royal celebration, the cask was filled with spirit at the distillery at 11am, during the exchange of wedding vows.
“The wedding date is prominently printed on the cask.
“The 250-litre sherry hogshead cask will be displayed in a bonded warehouse at the visitor centre.
“The commemoration will be a fantastic Scottish attraction for the distillery and members of the public.
“The cask not only symbolises the royal wedding but it also represents the couple’s link with Strathearn and Scotland where they first met and fell in love.
“The Tullibardine distillery, is one of the most prominent landmarks in the heart of Strathearn.”
The spokesperson added: “It is hoped that the royal pair will sign the cask on a future visit to Scotland. The cask will be donated to the couple as a wedding gift, and after it matures for three years, they could then choose to keep it or offer it to a charity.”
Distillery director, Douglas Ross, said: “The cask is a wonderful wedding present and evokes Scottish sentiment for the royal couple. It would be an honour to have the cask signed by the couple and we hope to welcome them here on a future visit.”
The cask is now on display and visitors will enjoy the new addition to the distillery, giving their experience at Tullibardine a royal twist.
The cask is available for picture desks to take photographs by arrangement.

Notes to editors:
Tullibardine is one of the few remaining independently-owned distilleries in Scotland.
Nestled at the foot of the Ochil Hills, in the Highlands, the distillery draws pure spring water from source and produces one of Scotland’s finest malt whiskies. Standing on the site of Scotland’s oldest brewery dating back to the 12th century, and from where King James IV purchased beer to celebrate his coronation in 1488, Tullibardine is undoubtedly one of the most majestic malt whiskies available.
