Cardhu has a generous spirit which flows from two pioneering women, Helen and Elizabeth Cumming who cofounded and built up the distillery.
200 hundred years ago when rural communities were close knit Helen Cumming warned Neighbouring distillery of the approach of the revenue officials by hoisting a flag.
Later, Elizabeth Cumming's entrepreneurial drive enabled her to build a new, much large distillery. She was also known for her acts of kindness and her hospitable home.
When Elizabeth Retired she entrusted her cherished Cardhu to John walker & Sons. This, their first distillery has become the spiritual home of Johnnie Walker, while its own generous spirit echoes the character of the cummings of Cardhu.
Carhu is a soft, smooth Speyside single malt acclaimed for its elegant style and silky texture. Each generous lay filled with honey and Rich fruity flavour.
Finest malted barley, pure spring water from the Mannoch Hills, slow traditional distilling and skilled maturation in oak all play their part in its creation.
