OUR THOUGHTS: 

We were happy to see that Cardhu was open late (until 7pm) on Friday evening during the summer season. With our ‘friends of the Classic Malt’ passports we got our standard Cardhu tour free of charge.

It was really nice to hear first hand, the history behind this woman pioneered distillery and finally understand the significance of the flag bearing visage on the Cardhu packaging.

Overall a basic distillery tour but enjoyable and the tour guide happily answered our questions.


TIPS:

– Book ahead for a late evening tour, when all other distilleries are long closed.

– They provide driver’s dram containers so Drivers don’t forget to take yours to-go!
