THE STORY OF CARDHU
Uncover the history behind the liquid
In 1811 John and Helen Cumming sited their first still at Cardow Farm on the Mannoch Hill, high above the River Spey, where spring water, naturally softened by a layer of peat, bubbled from the ground. It was to be the perfect spot for their farm, and a distillery that would stand the test of time.
