Venue Description

Discover the warm-hearted spirit of our Speyside home where we create our premium whisky, evoking ripe orchard fruit, fresh grass, and mellow cereal. Come experience the warmest of welcomes, the heartfelt embrace of Cardhu. Our 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.
