Appeal following theft of high value whisky, Perthshire
Officers are appealing for information after eight bottles of whisky worth over £10,000 were stolen from a distillery visitor centre in Perthshire.
Around 11.25pm on Thursday, 24 June, it was discovered that the doors to the visitor centre at the Tullibardine distillery’s visitor centre in Blackford, facing the main A9 road, had been damaged.
It was found that two display cabinets had been tampered with. Four 70cl bottles of 1964 Custodian whisky, retailing at £2,000 each, and four 70cl bottles of Highland Queen 46-year-old whisky, retailing at £600 each, were missing.
Inspector Craig Stephen said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area between 10.20pm and the discovery of the break-in at 11.25pm.
“In particular we are keen to speak to anyone driving on the A9 and local roads who may have dash-cam footage that could help with our enquiries.
“It is possible that those responsible made off on foot in the direction of Stirling Street so I would also appeal to anyone in Blackford with private CCTV footage to get in touch.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 0049 of Friday, 25 June, or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
