GLENCADAM (1825 -2000) (2003

Brechin, Angus. Licentiehouder: Geo. Ballantine & Son Ltd. Onderdeel van Caledonian Malt Whisky Distillers. Onderdeel van Allied Distillers Ltd. Deel uitmakend van de Hiram Walker Group. Het eigendom van Allied Domecq.
Opgericht twee jaar na het inwerking treden van de The Excice Act in 1823, die het legaal distilleren enorm bevorderde.
Gesticht door George Copper, eigenaar van het nabij gelegen Cadam Estate.
Na twee jaar werd Glencadam overgenomen door David Scott en hij bleef eigenaar tot 1837.
Glencadam veranderde nog een paar maal van eigenaar tot in 1891 Gilmour, Thomson & Co, Ltd, een blender te Glagow de distilleerderij overnam.
Deze firma bleef eigenaar tot in 1954 toen Hiram Walker Glencadam kocht.
Hiram Walker werd zelf overgenomen door Allied Lyons, in 1987, en ging in 1994 een fusie aan met Pedro Domecq.
Kwam vroeger het proceswater van Moorfoot Loch en de Unthank Springs, en het koelwater van de
Barries Burn, komt tegenwoordig het proceswater via een pijpleiding van het Loch Dee en het koelwater van de Unthank Springs en de Barries Burn.
In 1959 werd Glencadam gemoderniseerd, maar niet vergroot.
Glencadam heeft twee met stoom verhitte ketels met een produktie van 1,2 miljoen liter spirit per jaar.
In Mei 2000 werd Glencadam (tijdelijk ?) gesloten. De Mash tun is 4.56 ton. De zes Wash backs hebben een inhoud van elk 28000 liter.
De Wash still en Spirit still, beiden met stoom verhit, hebben elk een inhoud van 14000 liter.

Allied Distillers Februari 2003

A very special collection of casks was chosen for the Origin 1825 edition.
The final selection consisted of a unique marriage of whisky matured
in first - class American white - oak bourbon barrels with whisky
"finished" in the finest Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts. The result is this
suberb release of Glencadam, Origin 1825.

Opened in 1825, just one year after distilling on a large scale was legalised,
the Glencadam Distillery continues to produce its rather elegant Single
Malt Scotch Whisky in the same fashion it did in 1825.

Glancadam Distillery is located about half a mile outside the ancient city
and former Royal Burgh of Brechin in the kingdom of Angus in the eastern
Highlands of Scotland.

The essential supply of pure water for distilling depends on Glencadam's
long - held rights to springs, about half a mile away in the Unthank hills.

Glencadam has operated two pot stills since the beginning. An unusual
feature about the stills is that their lye pipes run upwards at an angle of
15 degrees rather than dawnwards.

The belief is that this helps tp produce a particulairy delicate and mellow
spirit  which after maturation yields sweet and fruity notes in the final
product.
