  • Glencadam Wins Gold at International Spirits Challenge

  • Exciting News from the Distillery

    When Glencadam was built in 1825 production was driven by an internal water wheel, which over the years fell into disrepair and had to be removed. After years of planning we have now re-instated this unique piece of heritage, making it now the only whisky distillery in Scotland to have a working internal water wheel. 

    This new wheel sits in the heart of the distillery, and in time when the new Visitor Centre is built, it will be a highlight of the distillery tour, as people will be able to view it from above and the side. 

    We commissioned a fascinating video which follows the story of the wheel arriving on site and the installation, and includes footage of the local engineer who built it, plus our Distillery Manager and Director talking about it. You can view it on the Youtube link below.

  • NEW Release "Reserva Andalucia"

    Glencadam Distillery is delighted to announce the release of a new limited edition Oloroso sherry cask finish expression, which pays homage to the long history that the distillery has with sourcing casks from the world famous sherry region, Andalucia in Spain.  

    To create Reserve Andalucia Glencadam Master Distiller, Robert Fleming, carefully selected sherry and bourbon casks from the ancient dunnage warehouses at the distillery, which date back to 1825. These casks were then married together and the whisky finished in exceptional Oloroso Sherry butts, which Robert had personally chosen from some of the finest sherry bodegas in Andalucia.

    The result is a rich and refined whisky, which retains all the sweet and spicy character that makes Glencadam so unique, balanced with a delicious, smooth and honeyed finish.
