Products from Cardhu
Founded in the early nineteenth century when John Cumming turned from smuggling to seasonal distilling, the Cardhu distillery is in Archiestown, Scotland. At the time, John’s wife, Helen, ran the distillation process between baking and fending off questions about the unofficial installation. Nowadays, of course, this totally legitimate Speyside single malt has become one of the Diageo group’s most successful products.
Aromatic and perfect with dried ham, Cardhu whisky has rich notes of apple, honey and toffee. As a label, it is particularly popular on the continent; three-quarters of its sales are in Spain and France.
