The Cardhu Distillery (known as Cardow at the time) was officially founded in 1824 by John Cumming, a farmer who allegedly had been involved in illegal distillation before. In 1839, John Lewis Cumming’s son took over the poin distillery in 1872 John Cumming’s daughter-in-law Elizabeth Cumming (apparently on a whim) decided to build a brand new distillery on an adjacent piece of property. Cardow was extended in 1887 before it was bought in 1893 by a small company: John Walker and Sons Ltd. Rebuilt in 1960/61, it finally officially took the name Cardhu (black rock in Gaelic) in 1980: it is a fundamental component of Johnnie Walker which absorbs almost 70% of its production.
