Tamdhu

Posted 11 April 2018

Ian MacLeod Distillers have big plans for Speysider Tamdhu – though you’d not know this from the distillery’s current core range lineup, which can be counted on a single hand. Following Tamdhu’s closure in 2010 (by then owners Edrington), MacLeod have nurtured the distillery since 2012, installing new washbacks, warehousing and a visitors centre. As well as introducing a new range of young sherry-forward expressions over the last few years, they have sought to supplement the distillery’s existing aged-stocks with casks of their own spirit, which have been producing since May production commenced in 2013.

Tamdhu was founded in 1896, and barring several closures (one long: 1927 – 1947 and one short: 2010 – 2011) quietly went about making malt whisky for use as filler in many well-known blends such as Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark. The distillery was picked up by Ian MacLeod Distillers (owners of Glengoyne) in 2011 and production resumed in 2013 with a new focus – 100% sherry cask maturation. Since the handover, the distillery has produced only a handful of bottlings: a 10 year old and a Batch Strength make up the current core range, with a limited edition 10 year old matured that has been matured in first fill sherry casks providing a more exclusive experience.
