The only malt distillery pioneered by a woman, Cardhu might have been established by ex-whisky smuggler John Cumming, but was mostly run and developed as a farm distillery by his wife Helen. Later her daughter-in-law Elizabeth took the reins, and built a new distillery in the existing location. Now part of the Diageo stable and considerably larger than in its artisan youth, the malt whisky produced here is the core of many Johnnie Walker blends, and also bottled as a single malt, Cardhu Special Cask Reserve.
