- Tamdhu was founded in Speyside in 1896 and was owned by Highland Distillers from 1898 until 1999, when HD was bought by Edrington Group. Tamdhu's sister distilleries in Edrington include Glenturret, Glenrothes, Highland Park and Macallan, and the vast majority of its spirit goes into the company's Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark blends.
Tamdhu is the only distillery still using the Saladin Box method of malting barley, which replaced the traditional floor maltings in 1950 when the distillery was refurbished. The maltings at the distillery supply some of the malt for other distilleries in the group. During the 1970s the number of stills at Tamdhu was increased from two to six, and the distillery now has a potential output of around 4 million litres/year although it is not operating at full capacity at present.
Until recently the only official bottling of Tamdhu was the no-age-statement standard expression, but a distillery-bottled 18 year-old was introduced to the range in 2009. Independent bottlings are also regularly available from the likes of Gordon & Macphail. The house style is described by Michael Jackson as 'Mild, urbane. Sometimes toffee-nosed. Versatile'.
Bursting with fruit and spice - gently yielding to toffee and sherry oak with the slightest wisp of peat smoke.
