History The Cardhu Distillery is one of the oldest in Speyside. It is said that in 1811 John Cumming and his wife Helen were illegally distilling at their farm. So when the Excise Act becomes effective in 1823, John and his wife immediately request and obtain a license for distillation. It is also said that his wife was to handle in person the distillery and the sale of moonshine bottles to passers through the farm window. At the death of Helen, the distilleries continue in the hands of Elizabeth, who in 1884 transforms what was a craft workshop into a real distillery. The old distillery of the old distillery was sold to a certain William Grant who was building a Glenfiddich distillery in the nearby hamlet of Dufftown. Elizabeth built a new distillery in a different part of the property where the distillery is located today. Cardhu, for the quality of his spirit, soon became a favorite malt for blended although in 1888 he was available as single malt in the London markets. In 1893, the distillery was sold to one of its historic clients, John Walker & Sons, provided the Cumming family maintained an operational and directional role. The distillery had a steady rise, moving to 4 amphibians in 1897 and 6 amphibians in the 1960s. Cardhu retained its dominant position in Johnnie Walker's bouquet, but since the 1980s, he gained significant quotas even in the nascent single malt market. This situation began to become a problem in 2002 when the demand for Single Malt Cardhu in the Spanish and French markets became so important to overcome the production capacity of the distillery. And here is the dark side of Cardhu, or rather of Diageo. It was thought to solve the problem with a skillful three-card game. The Cardhu name went from single malt to a vatted malt (today it would be blended)
