What you will do
Guided tour of the whisky making process at Cardhu Distillery and a short history followed by a tutored nosing and tasting of five of our single malts. The malt whisky produced here has a warmth and cleanliness of taste which experts describe as "silky" and is used in some of the award winning Johnnie Walker blends.
Cardhu Distillery nestles in a picturesque setting in the heart of Speyside. Speyside is known all over the world as whisky country. The Cardhu distillery which is the only distillery started by a women, really does stand out from all the other distilleries in the Speyside area. The light character of our 12yr old Cardhu is an excellent starting point for anyone starting on their whisky journey and our new additions to the family the Cardhu 15 and 18yr offer flavours for those for that are looking for something a little more complex. The Cardhu range of whiskies are an excellent representation of a Speyside whisky and are enjoyed by people in a variety of countries.

In 1811 John and Helen Cumming sited their first still at Cardow Farm on the Mannoch Hill, high above the River Spey. At this location spring water, naturally softened by rising up through a layer of peat, bubbled from the ground. It is alleged that Helen Cumming distilled the first gallon of Cardhu, the only malt whisky to be pioneered by a woman. For many years Helen Cumming produced only the smallest quantity of malt whisky in Cardhu's little still as quality was her chief concern. She continued to contribute to Cardhu's success well into her 90's.www.discovering-distilleries.com
