A silky, smooth Whisky with layers of luscious, rich fruit, sweet honey and nut, all balanced by a delicious dry freshness.


Cardhu (orig. Car-Dhu), which means “Black Rock” in Gaelic, was founded and run in the 19th century by two strong, pioneering women distillers, Helen and Elizabeth Cumming. Over a span of 80 years, they helped make this small farm distillery into an industry leader.

Interesting Facts:

One of the world’s leading Single Malt Scotch whiskies from one of the first legal distilleries on Speyside and the first distillery of John Walker & Sons, now the spiritual home of Johnnie Walker.

Pioneered by Helen and Elizabeth Cumming (the latter, the only female distiller of her time), Cardhu is a rich, smooth Whisky whose generous spirit reflects their sure touch.

Pouring Cardhu from its unique decanter into a large balloon glass is a truly deluxe experience, from the "pop" of the cork and the "glug" of the pour to the swirl in the glass.
