Cardhu comes from one of the oldest of the Speyside distilleries, which have nestled in foothills near the River Spey for 200 years. Enticing and silky smooth, 12 Year Old is the quintessential Cardhu - glowing with notes of golden honey and a delicate, fruity character. The history of Cardhu's rise to fame is to a large part told in the story of two determined women: Helen Cumming, who founded the distillery with her husband in 1811, can fairly be called the first ‘woman of whisky', and her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, became known as the ‘Queen of the Whisky Trade'. Cardhu 12 Year Old palate is well balanced and smooth; starting sweet and fresh, and finishing with a lingering sweet smoke, drying aftertaste. The light character of the 12 Year Old Cardhu is an excellent starting point for anyone starting on their whisky journey. The smooth, honeyed flavours of a 12 Year Old Cardhu shine best when served neat or over ice. This award winning Whisky gained a Silver outstanding award at the 2014 International Wine & Spirits Competition and Gold at The Scotch Whisky Masters 2014. The bottle is distinctive and elegant, making it a great gift for drinkers of sweet Malts. Beautifully presented in gold luxurious packaging, Cardhu 12yo makes the perfect gift for any whisky lover.
Cardhu has a generous spirit which flows from two pioneering women, Helen and Elizabeth Cumming who cofounded and built up the distillery.
Two hundred years ago, when rural communities were close knit, Helen Cumming warned neighbouring distillers of the approach of revenue officials by hoisting a flag.
Later, Elizabeth Cumming's entrepreneurial drive enabled her to build a new, much larger distillery. She was also known for her acts of kindness and for her 'hospitable home'.
When Elizabeth retired she entrusted her cherished Cardhu to John Walker & Sons. This, their first distillery has become the spiritual home of Johnnie Walker® while its own generous spirit echoes the character of The Cummings of Cardhu.
