Cardhu Distillery


Cardhu Distillery nestles in a picturesque setting in the heart of Speyside. Speyside is known all over the world as whisky country. The Cardhu distillery which is the only distillery started by a woman, really does stand out from all the other distilleries in the Speyside area. The Cardhu Range offers something for everyone: from the light and delicate character of the 12 year old through to the more complex flavour of the 18 year old. Cardhu is part of the world famous Malt Whisky Trail which includes Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Strathilsa, Benromach to name a few.
