Tamdhu is a historic Speyside producer, and for many years was alone with Springbank and Glen Ord as being the only fully self-sufficient distilleries in Scotland. It was the first in Scotland to install Saladin boxes for malting and today it is the last distillery to still use them, which in its years being owned by Edrington, also supplied malt to Glenrothes and Highland Park. Traditionally, Tamdhu was mostly used in blends such as Cutty Sark and The Famous Grouse, but it has always been regarded as a great single malt, and new owners, Ian Macleod Distillers, are now focusing on this.
Aged exclusively in sherry oak, the Dalbeallie dram is named for the local train station at Dalbeallie, "where casks would arrive from Spain and Tamdhu began its passage to the world" prior to it's closure in the 1960s.
