Fodor's Review

The striking outline of Cardhu Distillery, whose main product lies at the heart of Johnnie Walker Blends, is set among the heather-clad Mannoch Hills. Established by John and Helen Cumming in 1811, it was officially founded in 1824 after distilling was made legal by the Excise Act of 1823. Today Cardhu is owned by the superbrewer Diageo (which tried to rename it Cardow, although the single malt is still known as Cardhu). Guides take you to the mashing, fermenting, and

distilling halls, and they explain the malting process that now takes place on the coast at Burghead. Take time to walk around the attractive grounds or picnic there. Cardhu is 10 miles north of Glenlivet and 7 miles west of Aberlour.
