Cardhu

NEEDS TO BE EXPERIENCED

From its origins in a small farmhouse on the windswept braes below Dallas Moor to its international acclaim as a great Highland Single Malt Whisky, the history of the Cardhu is a classic of its kind. Distilling whisky was, in Scotland's history, a small-scale family affair.

The name of the farm in its anglicised spelling was Cardow Farm, but to the gaelic speaking locals, it was Cardhu -The Black Rock.

It is a unique characteristic of Cardhu that, in a whisky world dominated by men, women have played a major part in the history of the brand.

It was under Elizabeth Cumming's direction that Cardhu grew from a tiny, local distillery to one of the leading Speyside Single Malts.

The quality of Cardhu's product attracted many would be buyers. Finally in 1893, Elizabeth sold the distillery to John Walker & Sons of Kilmarnock and her son was installed as manager of the distillery, and a board member of Walker's with a substantial shareholding. Although a few bottles of Cardhu single malt became available over the years it was a key ingredient of the firm's famous "Johnnie Walker" that Cardhu was enjoyed, unknowingly, by Scotch drinkers the world over.

The history of the distillery, its treasured arts and traditions, the pure, clean flavour of the natural Highland ingredients, the care of making and the long, slow maturing are all to be tasted in a glass of Golden Cardhu - Truly a great Highland Single Malt.


A request from Chris:

Here's a swedish comment from a reader...:

Det här är en tämligen civiliserad Islay -- ja, en adlig smak, kanske
man kan säga. Mycket god. Den förekommer faktiskt i en roman som jag gav
ut nu i höst, Gyllene Gåsen, som utspelar sig på en krog med samma namn.
I kapitel 2 presenteras krogens dryckesmästare, och där står det så här:

"Dryckesmästaren heter Katz. Hans uppgift är att smörja maskineriet. Med
samma glädje som han bär fram ett glas utsökt Caol Ila presenterar han
en stork stark och en törstig sjåare för varandra."

Ja, det kunde ju vara intressant att veta, tänkte jag...

Skål!

CAMERON BRIG



Location :Scotland, Fife
Region :?
Country :Scotland
Type : Grain
Distillery : Cameronbridge Distillery
Cameron Bridge, Fife, Scotland
Founded :?
Owner :?
Producer : ?
Water :?
Remark :From Collins Pocket Reference : Whisky
Cameronbridge Distillery had been operating for several years before it was acquired in 1824 by John Haig, one of the famouse family of Lowland Whisky distillers. One of its most famous directors, who subsequently became a director at the Distillers Company Limited, was Field Marshal Douglas Haig, commander in chief of the British Army on the Western Front during the First World War. Haig's company were among the founders of the Distillers Company in 1877, and United Distillers still own the distillery today. Cameronbridge produced both grain and malt whisky using a mixture of pot and patent stills until 1929 before finally concentrating on grain only.
Tasting comment : Like other grain whiskies, a lighter spirit than malt, whith a fresh taste and an element of smoothness.
