    Tamdhu Single Malt Whisky

    Tamdhu distillery in Aberlour was founded in 1896 by a group of local whisky blenders who sought to build the most advanced whisky distillery of the time. Well-known local architect Charles Doig was enlisted to design and construct the buildings, which are nestled on the banks of the River Spey, next to the Knockando Burn.

    The development of this super-advanced distillery was halted due to locals' objections to the lifting of such large quantities of water from the nearby burns, but these issues were settled within a few years of the facility opening. There were then a number of closures and false starts which ultimately led to Tamdhu being mothballed for two decades and not re-opening until 1948.The brand continued as a fairly low profile but well-liked budget option for single malt whisky in the UK. The distillery was acquired by The Edrington Group in 1999, and was mothballed in 2010.

    Many thought this would be the end of the road for Tamdhu, but just a year after closure the facility was purchased by Ian Macleod Distillers, who also own the Glengoyne distillery. They quickly focused on firing up the stills again and re-launching the brand; and Tamdhu is now more popular than ever. The 10 year old core expression is now a common sight on store shelves and has won multiple awards. It is expected the core range from Tamdhu will expand considerably in coming years, as new spirit reaches suitable maturation age.
