Tidal Ebb Profile
Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Tidal Ebb History
The Isle of Man’s Lombard Brands is an independent blender and bottler, and bulk supplier of Scotch whisky. While it can trace its roots back some 300 years, the company was born in its current guise in the mid-1960s.
Tidal Ebb was introduced in 2001 alongside Driftwood, as part of Lombard’s Distillation Malts series. At the time the company had also introduced its Illustration Malts range, three whiskies designed as dining accompaniments.
Following consolidation of its available Scotch brands in 2013, Tidal Ebb was discontinued (along with two out of three of the Illustration Malts series). However Driftwood continues, and is still available from specialist retailers.
