Glencadam Distillery, Highlands

The Glencadam distillery has been founded in 1825 near the royal burgh Brechin in Eastern Highlands by George Copper. In 1954 the distillery was revived and modernised by Hiram Walker of Ballantine's group, that much favoured Glencadam for their blends (Ballantine and Stewart's Cream of the Barley Blends).

Allied Distillers closed the distillery in 2000, but in May 2003 Angus Dundee Distillers  came to the rescue as the new proprietors to resume the production.

Almost all the production is used in blends: Examples are Angus Dundee, The Dundee, Glen Parker, MacKillops Choice and Scottish Royal. Glencadam is a notably creamy malt, smooth to start, developping  strawberries and candy nuances.
