Cardhu Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Region: Scotland


The Excise Act of 1824 marked the transformation of John and Helen Cummings’ cottage business into a well-respected local distillery – thanks largely to Helen’s business acumen and skill as a distiller. But it was the wife of Lewis, their son, who established the character and flavour of the malt we know today. Elizabeth Cummings took over the distillery in 1872 after the death of her husband and soon registered Car Dhu as a trademark. She grew production every year and, by 1884, larger premises were needed.

With the construction of New Cardhu nearby, Elizabeth laid the foundations for a whisky of global renown.
