Cardhu 12 Year Old 40% 70cl
Cardhu 12 Year Old
For a distillery that not many people in the UK will have heard of, Cardhu has been pretty important in the Scotch Whisky business. Not only was it one of the biggest selling malts in Europe at one point, it was also the first distillery owned by Johnnie Walker & Sons, when they bought it in 1893. Cardhu in the late 1880's sold their old stills to one William Grant, who set up Glenfiddich and used these stills. With the money they made from selling the stills, they expanded, which made them an interesting prospect for a takeover, hence why Johnnie Walker & Sons purchased them. And it was one of the first distilleries to be owned and operated by a woman. On top of all this, it is lovely, easy drinking Single Malt Whisky.
