Eight bottles of whisky worth more than £10,000 have been stolen from a distillery visitor centre in Perthshire.

Police were called to Tullibardine Distillery in Blackford at around 11.25pm on Thursday after the visitor centre’s doors were found to be damaged.

Investigating officers said two display cabinets had been tampered with.

Four 70cl bottles of 1964 Custodian whisky, retailing at £2000 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 dashcam 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.”
