GLENCADAM

Glencadam’s new make character
of flowers and pear drops is a direct
result of a distillation regime that
maximises reflux – the lyne arms on
the stills are angled upwards. Its mature
character, especially when matured in
refill American oak, has a soft buttery
quality that adds a silkiness to the palate.  

Glencadam, which is situated in the Burgh
of Brechin, was built in the era of optimism
that followed the passing of the 1823
Excise Act. After passing through a number
of owners, it became part of the estate of
Glasgow blender Gilmour Thompson & Co
which bought the distillery in 1891.

The blending house ceased trading in 1954
when Glencadam was sold to Canadian distiller
Hiram Walker, which was then starting its first
acquisitive sweep through Scotland. Through a
process of amalgamation it became part of
Allied Distillers and was seen as being the ‘home’
of the Dundee blend Stewart’s Cream of the
Barley.

Allied mothballed the plant in 2000 but it was
purchased three years later by London-based
Angus Dundee [see Tomintoul]. Angus Dundee’s
blending lab is now located at the distillery.

A quiet player for most of its existence,
Glencadam is slowly emerging as a single malt
in its own right. Its recent proprietary bottlings
have not been chill-filtered or caramel tinted.

ANGUS DUNDEE DISTILLERS
Angus Dundee Distillers owns Tomintoul
distillery on Speyside and Glencadam at
Brechin, in the east of Scotland. Both are
equipped with blending facilities, and much
of the company’s business is concerned
with supplying blends to European trade
customers, sometimes pre-bottled and
sometimes in bulk. In addition to its two
distilleries, Angus Dundee also owns a
bottling plant at Coatbridge, near Glasgow.

Despite a concentration on own-label export
brands, the firm’s Tomintoul and Glencadam
single malts have been gaining greater
exposure in their own right during recent
years, and a wide range of aged expressions
of both whiskies is now available.

Based in London, Angus Dundee Distillers Plc.
was established in 1950 by ex-Burn Stewart
executive Terry Hillman as a Scotch whisky
blending company, and is now run by his children
Tania and Aaron.

In 2000, Angus Dundee purchased the silent
Tomintoul distillery from JBB (Greater Europe),
giving it access to single malt stocks. Tomintoul
was one of the new breed of functional post-war
Scottish distilleries, established in 1964, but
despite its austere appearance it was located in
beautiful if remote country, just a few miles
from the great Glenlivet distillery.

Three years after buying Tomintoul, Angus Dundee
acquired Glencadam from Allied Domecq in order to
augment spirit supply. By contrast with Tomintoul,
Glencadam boasted a long history of whisky-making,
having been founded in 1825 by one George Cooper.

The Glencadam Distillery Company Ltd
is a subsidiary of London-based Angus
Dundee Distillers, which also owns the
Tomintoul distillery in Ballindalloch.

It has operated the Glencadam distillery
in Brechin since 2003.

The company was formed in 2003 by
Angus Dundee Distillers to acquire the
Glencadam distillery from Allied Distillers.

The Brechin distillery, which was built in
1825, had produced a light, fruity malt
whisky for blending, but had been
mothballed by its owner since 2000.

Following its takeover by Angus Dundee,
Glencadam was reopened and in 2008
released its own range of single malts.

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 koel¬water 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.

This distillery stands about half a mile
outside the Royal Burgh of Brechin, in
Anges, and was formerly classified as
a 'Forfarshire malt'.

It was built in 1825 and provides the
heart malt for 'Stewart's Cream of the
Barley, the well known Dundee blend.
It is uncommon as a single.
This refill cask has bestowed a pale
amber colour to its contents. Once it
has settled, the nose is creamy and
lightly toffied, like bon-bons.
There is a trace of perfume-violets?
Water edges this floral note towards
roses, then damp moss, pencil shavings
and sweet, fresh tobacco. The flavour
is dry overall, with a clean bitter finish.
A good aperitif dram.

The Glencadam Distillery was
established in the year 1825 in the
Royal Burgh of Brechin.

Nestled in the cleft of an undulating
hill approximately a half a mile outside
of the ancient Scottish city of Brechin,
lies the Glencadam Distillery.

Opened in 1825, just one year after
distilling on a large scale was legalized;
the Glen¬cadam Distillery continues to
produce its exceptionally smooth
Single Malt Scotch Whisky in the same
fashion as it did in 1825.
Some say that its sweet and fruit tones
are a result of the two pot stills whose
unique pipes run upwards at an angle
of 15 degrees, while others attribute
its smooth character to the clear, bright
water from the springs running from
the Untbank hills.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
Opened in 1825, just one
year after distilling on a large
scale was legalised, the
Glencadam Distillery
continues to produce
ts rather delicate Single Malt Scotch
Whisky in the same fashion it did in
1825
This expression has been bottled at
46 % vol to retain the whisky’s unique
and natural charac-
teristics and subtlety of taste, and,
by not chill – filtering this whisky it
ensures that the aromatic components
in the whisky are preserved to
enhance presence and flavour
No caramel colouring has been added to
this single malt so that the naturainess of
the whisky
from the cask can be enjoyed to the full

Glencadam 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 upward at an
angle of 15 degrees rather than downwards.
The belief
is that this helps to produce a particularly
delicate and mellow spirit which after maturation
yields sweet and fruity notes in the final product

Tasting Notes:
Colour: Straw gold
Nose: Delicate, intense. Grassy freshness
and citrus tones with hints of spice oak
Palate: Rounded elegance. Clean, crisp citrus
tones. A pleasing harmony between
A natural sweetness and the soft spice oak
Finish: Long and soothing. Rich, clean barley
and gristy sweetness

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 i
ts rather elegant Single
Malt Scotch Whisky in the same fashion it
did in 1825.

delicious mix of soft spice.
Finish: Floral with pear – drop sweetness.

Glencadam first opened in 1825, in the ancient city of Brechin. This was the year that the first horse-drawn omnibuses were established in London, the world's first modern railway opened, with the first public train pulled by steam engine, Cox's Orange Pippin apples were first grown and London became the largest city in the world, over-taking Beijing. It was little more than one year after the Excise Act of 1823 legalised distilling.

Glencadam is now the only distillery in the county of Angus, an area of the Highlands region of Scotland. The first owner was a “Mr Cooper”, who sold the distillery in 1827. The name “Glencadam” comes from the area known as “The Tenements of Caldhame”. These were plots of ground given to the burghs of Brechin for food production. They were situated to the north and south east of the Den Burn where the distillery stands.

The Distillery
The distillery was owned by a David Scott and his descendants from 1827- 1891, and during this period it was rented to various distillers. Over the next few decades the distillery had a succession of owners.

Glencadam was mothballed during both world wars. The warehouses were instead used to barrack soldiers. There is still a mark on the grass by No. 2 warehouse where their commissary was. Glencadam was bought in the 1950s by Hiram Walker, which subsequently became Allied Domeq, who closed the distillery in 2000.

Glencadam Single Malt has always been premium whisky for blending, and as such was highly sought after for some of the world’s most prestigious blends. Glencadam was finally bought by Angus Dundee Distillers on 1st June 2003, an independent Scottish company. Angus Dundee restarted production immediately, and we released our first ever single malt product, Glencadam Single Malt Scotch Whisky Aged 15 Years, in December 2005. This was subsequently re-launched in November 2009 with new packaging, alongside the release of a 10 year old expression.

Award Winning
Our current multi-award winning range now includes Age 10, 15 and 21 Years expressions, as well as Aged 12 Years Old Portwood and Aged 14 Years Oloroso cask finishes, and Aged 30 Years Single Cask.
