Making the great even greater.

Tamdhu started out as a revolutionary distillery in the time of early railroad construction, electricity, and industrialization in Scotland. Tamdhu’s founders were obsessed with the idea of perfection and constructed the most advanced distillery of its time. After the booming 1970s, they were forced to close their doors in 2010 but returned with a bang 2 years later, revitalized, ready, and raring to return to their old glory.

They are masters of Sherried Speyside Scotch and damn serious about their business. Case in point: Their award-winning entry-level 10-year-old was recently replaced by a 12-year-old. It's the same delicious juice that has now spent an additional couple of years in a combination of the finest first fill and refill American & European Oloroso Sherry casks. You know what they say — Jack of all trades, master of none. This rich and complex Spirit is living proof that picking a single style and sticking with it pays off. In spades!

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
