8th May 2013
relaunched with a new Tamdhu 10 year old
of Speyside’s founding distilleries,
Tamdhu has been re-launched with a new
10 year old Single Malt.
Acquired in June 2011 by Ian Macleod
Distillers, leading Scottish independent
family owned distiller and bottler,
Tamdhu Distillery was established in
1897 by a consortium of pioneering
businessmen who embodied the ‘can-dhu’
spirit of their generation.
The new Tamdhu 10 year old has a softness of
vanilla and sugared almonds on the nose
balanced by fresh oak and cinnamon.
Bursting with fruit and spice, which
gently yields to toffee, there is a
richness of sherry oak on the palate
with a gentle hint of peat smoke wisp.
The new Tamdhu comes in a stylish,
textured black, white and gold tube,
illustrated monograms and an elegant
glass bottle, inspired by the Victorian
Commenting on the launch, Leonard
Russell, managing director and third

growing Tamdhu not only as a brand but
from an economic and investment

for nearly two years to ensure that our
best casks had hit their peak before
bottling. With a focus on quality, we
have honoured the careful distillation
process to create a premium malt Scotch
whisky we believe Tamdhu’s founders
would be proud of."
Iain Weir, Ian Macleod Distillers’
Marketing Director, added:
"Tamdhu is a perfect complement to our
existing portfolio of brands, delivering
a premium Speyside malt and real point
of difference for the category. There
has been significant interest from
consumers and trade to see what we would
do with Tamdhu and the Speyside Whisky
Festival is the perfect platform to
reintroduce the brand on its home soil.
