Over 180 years

of refinement

It all started in Aberdeen for Cadenhead.

The firm of William Cadenhead Limited, Wine and Spirit Merchants, was founded in the 1840’s.

The distillery remained in the same family until the 1970’s, when it was taken over by the well-known Campbeltown firm of J & A Mitchell & Co, who own the nearby Springbank Distillery.

When the Mitchell family purchased Cadenhead in 1972, the Campbeltown-based distillery assumed the stock of Cadenhead’s Aberdeen warehouse. Crammed from cellar to roof, the warehouse’s contents extended across a catalogue of 167 pages and was, to that date, the largest sale of wines and spirits held in Great Britain.

Wow. And here we were thinking The Odd Whisky Coy was well-stocked…
