Tamdhu distillery is Speyside whisky distillery, located in the town of Knockando in Banffshire, Scotland. Tamdhu comes from Gaelic for little dark hill. The distillery was founded in 1897. Tamdhu’s founders set out to construct the most pioneering distillery in the world. A water wheel positioned beneath the floor for optimum performance, kilns redesigned to reduce heat loss, and waste extracted by Archimedean Screw, direct to the distillery’s own railway station. 113 years later the distillery fell silent, but its soul lived on, fuelled by the'Can-Dhu-Spirit' and passion for quality that inspired those daring merchants an age before, Ian Macleod Distillers took on the challenge to return the eminent distillery to former glory. Only the best European and American oak is selected to mature the precious spirit.
