THE DISTILLERY

Discover the warm-hearted spirit of the Speyside home where premium whisky is created, evoking ripe orchard fruit, fresh grass, and mellow cereal. Come experience the warmest of welcomes, the heartfelt embrace of Cardhu. The founding women, Helen and Elizabeth Cumming, were treasured for their determination, skill, generosity, and loyalty to the community, forever defining Cardhu as a whisky with heart. This was the first distillery to partner with John Walker & Sons, and for 200 years, the elegant, smooth, sensual character of Cardhu has been at the centre of shared celebrations around the world. Book your distillery tour online today or visit the bar, The Tasting Kitchen, to enjoy cocktails, drams, coffees and sharing platters.
