The Glencadam distillery was founded in 1825 near the royal burgh of Brechin by George Copper. Two years later it was sold to David Scott. In 1895, the distillery was taken over by the Glasgow blenders Gilmour Thomson and Co. Ltd. During the early 1900's Glencadam malt was a main component of the Gilmour Thomson's Royal blend, one of the favourite whiskies of King Edward VII.

In 1954 the distillery was taken over by Hiram Walker & Son who use the whisky in their blends. Hiram Walker thoroughly reconstructed the distillery in 1959. Hiram Walker then became part of Allied Lyons in 1987. The latter merged with Pedro Domecq in 1994 to become Allied Domecq Limited. Allied Distillers mothballed the distillery in 2000 due to over-production. In May 2003, the distillery was bought and reopened by Angus Dundee Distillers. Almost all the production is used in the Ballantine's blends: Ballantine and Stewart's Cream of the Barley Blends.
