About the distillery
Cardhu Distillery, Region Speyside, Located in Moray was founded in 1824 By the Cunnings who were previously whisky smugglers. The distillery went through a rebuild in 1885 to modernise and increase production. The rebuild led to over 3X the production previously set at the distillery. In 1983 the distillery was sold to Johnnie walker and sons in 1893 who at the time were already purchasing a high quantity of Cardhu's whisky for blending, In 1930 now known Diageo Purchased the distillery and caused huge controversy in 2003 by changing Chardu whisky from a single malt to a "pure malt" and in 2006 started the re-production of single malt due to the heavy drop in sales, Majority of the production is used in Johnnie Walker Blends
