About Tamdhu

At the heart of the Speyside tradition, Tamdhu distillery uses water flowing into the nearby River Spey and the fertile glens that sit within the area to make their expertly-crafted expressions. The Tamdhu team are dedicated to their craft, and have a loyalty club named ‘The Dedication Society’ which gives exclusive behind the scenes content, offers and presales. For their recent 125th anniversary, an impressive 18-year-old single malt was released, adding to their core collection of 12-year-old, 15-year-old and Batch Strength.

History

In 1897, a group of entrepreneurs raised today’s equivalent of £20 million towards their mission to create the finest whisky in the world. On the back of this shared passion for excellence, they founded Tamdhu distillery on the banks of the River Spey and employed the eminent distillery architect of the day, Charles C Doig Esq. For a time, Tamdhu was the only distillery to make all its own requirement of malt, using innovative Saladin boxes to mechanise the barley turning process. For over 110 years, Tamdhu thrived. However, it was forced to close its doors in 2010 at the peak of the recession. It was saved from ruin after being purchased by Ian Macleod Distillers, and has been restored to its former glory by using the same processes as always: 100% sherry casks and, of course, dedication.
