Luxury menswear brand D.S. Dundee and Perthshire-based Tullibardine Distillery have collaborated to create a limited edition gift box.
The perfect present for the modern gentlemen, the exclusive offering contains a designer lambswool gloves and scarf set from D.S. Dundee and a bottle of the Tullibardine Aged Oak Edition of its fine single malt.
Beautifully presented in a branded wooden box, these quintessentially Scottish products were recently showcased alongside D.S. Dundee’s new winter collection at the Scottish Country Living Fair.
Established in 1994, D.S. Dundee uses the UK’s highest quality fabrics and yarns and manufactures its garments in the EU.
Inspired by Scottish textile history and traditional country style, the firm transcends these parameters and creates a new aesthetic and desirable lifestyle.
Tullibardine’s smooth, creamy aged-oak malt was matured in Bourbon barrels that come from a marriage of single malt that was produced since the distillery re-opened and single malt which is over 15 years old.
This sought after gift box is now available for £55 via D.S. Dundee’s website (www.dsdundee.co.uk).

Notes to Editors
The autumn/winter collection by D.S. Dundee very much builds on last year’s heritage previously established, But it goes further to provide a complete wardrobe for the modern man. It features strong British elements to combat our winters in style.
Fabrics have been chosen for their innate protective qualities; the colours and textures are imbued with richness and warmth. The collaborations the firm has forged with UK manufacturers has enabled it to reconsider and restructure its brand—instilling it and its products with a greater longevity than before.
Back and with some serious refinement for AW09 is the Shooting Jacket. Cut sharper with fresh lining and new mix of leather detailing it is now available in Wheat Green, Charcoal and a dapper Check Tweed colourway. The jacket that gets called in for shoots and enquired after by buyers more than any other.
The success of the 3-piece tweed suit has meant a development of colour options and some inspired new touches. Introduction of a neat ticket pocket on the exterior leaves the fabric to do the rest of the talking. Inside there’ll be the perfect seam tape accent to bring out the tones of the wool. New options include the Hawick Houndstooth, Peat Herringbone, Teviot Tweed and the introduction of a new classic walnut brown “Robert Noble Gamekeeper Tweed”.
For the jacket wearer, D.S.DUNDEE is proud to present a fine collection of sharply cut tweed blazers with peaked lapels, which is ideal for more casual occasions and available in Cinder Check, Navy Herringbone and Sienna Check. All have been created with the usual unerring attention to detail.
The velvety corduroy jacket with peaked lapels is a sharp addition to any outfit. With a super soft finish, the jacket has become an instant hit at D.S.DUNDEE HQ. Available in Olive, Midnight Blue, Black and Camel, there’s an option for everyone.
Inspired by the inimitable style of the revolutionary Turkish leader, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, DSD’s tailoring asserts the wearer’s masculinity. The wool/cashmere Ataturk 3 piece suit is formal yet comfortable for all occasions.
In keeping with the DSD ethos, this season’s shirts are inspired by a combination of urban and rural themes. The working man’s Kendal stag check expands on the popular rural check theme and the introduction of grey flannel and ivory softer cotton/wool shirts will see any wearer through the winter. Equally at home in the country or the city is the duo of fine check shirts with hidden detailing.
A strong mix of 100% merino and 100% lambswool pieces, the knits are testament to our Scottish manufacturing links. DSD has developed the cardigan into a narrower, more refined fit and along with the classic stripe sweater it boasts the signature leather elbow patches – remaining a wardrobe’s mainstay. V-neck merinos complete the line-up and act as a perfect layering piece on the chillier evenings.
Highlights of the DSD accessory range include the limited edition umbrella in a subtle stripe that complements both the formal or casual sides to the range. Developed in collaboration with Fox Umbrellas of Croydon, it is a true homage to the English gent. The classic tweed and cashmere caps are available in an expanded range of fabrics for AW09.
As one of DSD’s defining pieces, the semi-brogue boot has featured right across the national newspapers and the magazines. Worn loose and casual or tied up smartly, these boots add the final touch to the strength of a D.S.DUNDEE outfit.
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.
