NEEDS TO BE EXPERIENCED
From its origins in a small farmhouse on the windswept braes below Dallas Moor to its international acclaim as a great Highland Single Malt Whisky, the history of the Cardhu is a classic of its kind. Distilling whisky was, in Scotland's history, a small-scale family affair.
The name of the farm in its anglicised spelling was Cardow Farm, but to the gaelic speaking locals, it was Cardhu -The Black Rock.
It is a unique characteristic of Cardhu that, in a whisky world dominated by men, women have played a major part in the history of the brand.
It was under Elizabeth Cumming's direction that Cardhu grew from a tiny, local distillery to one of the leading Speyside Single Malts.
The quality of Cardhu's product attracted many would be buyers. Finally in 1893, Elizabeth sold the distillery to John Walker & Sons of Kilmarnock and her son was installed as manager of the distillery, and a board member of Walker's with a substantial shareholding. Although a few bottles of Cardhu single malt became available over the years it was a key ingredient of the firm's famous "Johnnie Walker" that Cardhu was enjoyed, unknowingly, by Scotch drinkers the world over.
The history of the distillery, its treasured arts and traditions,
the pure, clean flavour of the natural Highland ingredients, the care of
making and the long, slow maturing are all to be tasted in a glass of Golden
Cardhu - Truly a great Highland Single Malt.
