Founded by Helen Cumming in 1811 as an illicit distillery and licensed in 1824, Cardhu is the first distillery to be officially promoted by a woman. Two women, in fact: in 1872, Elizabeth Cummings, daughter-in-law of the founders, took over the operation of the distillery and dedicated herself to refining the flavor and character of the whiskey we know today: an effortlessly elegant and generous distillate, born of hard work and determination.



Cardhu's origins date back to 1811 when John Cummings and his wife Helen took over the lease of the Cardhu farm. Like many of their farming neighbors, the Cummings took to illicit distilling, with Helen Cumming cleverly taunting the policemen by inviting them to her home, disguising the ferment as baked food, then sneaking off to alert her fellow distillers. waving a red flag.


By 1823, state tax laws for distilling eased, and John Cummings obtained a distillery license, marking the official founding of Cardhu in 1824. In the years that followed, Cardhu became a family business, with all his sons playing An important paper.


Already in the second generation, it was Elizabeth Cummings who resolved to keep the business running after the death of her husband, Cummings' eldest son, in 1872.


In 1893, Elizabeth sold the business to John Walker & Sons with the only condition that the family still run the distillery. Before her death, Elizabeth built cottages with running water for the distillery's employees, ensuring that Cardhu remained at the heart of the community and keeping her mother-in-law's legacy alive.
