Tamdhu began its life at the end of the Victorian era and lived on through the 20th Century on the banks of the River Spey, Inspired by the founders' vision, the distillery was then purchased in 2011 by Ian Macleod Distillers - a family company independent in thought and ownership. In 2012, they set out to return this eminent malt to its former glory. The sherry casks in use today are of the same type used when the distillery was established in 1897. Only the finest oak holds Tamdhu's spirit. These traditions create a Speyside Single Malt worthy of the name Tamdhu — a spirit the founders would recognise as their own. Sherry casks are an essentialelement in the flavour and colour. The casks are expensive nowadays– but it wasn’t always that way. When Tamdhu began in 1897, sherry casks were somewhat of a bargain. Grant, Dewar and Walker had them shipped to Speyside to hold the precious Tamdhu spirit.
