  • The Christmas Lights are on!

    At Glencadam Distillery our Christmas Tree is up and all the lights are on and looking incredible. 

    The whole team has worked incredibly hard on the decorations this year, which took months to prepare, all co-ordinated by our enthusiastic Office Supervisor Wendy. 

    Our new tree is 25ft high and was specially made by the clever distillery team from old cask staves. It's like a work of art in its own right. We have also added a sleigh and some reindeer, which will be especially popular with children.

    We get so many people coming to see our lights that this year we have decided to accept donations from visitors, and all money raised will go to Brechin Bravo, which is a wonderful local charity. 

    Ho Ho Ho!

  • The Green Cadam Cocktail

    Glencadam 10 Year Old is the perfect base for a variety of cocktails. The Green Cadam was specially created by our Brand Ambassador Iain and is a tasty crossing of a classic gimlet and whisky sour, combining the freshness of basil with the fruity Glencadam spirit


    • 2 x measures (50ml) Glencadam 10 Year Old Single Malt
    • 1 x measure (25ml) Lime Juice
    • 2/3 measure (17ml) Sugar Syrup
    • 4/5 large basil leaves
    • Method

    Add the ingredients together the shaker base and muddle together for 20 seconds. Then add ice and shake for a further 20 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass topped with ice and garnish with a young stem of basil.  


    • Muddle the cocktail for longer to extract more flecks of green for the cocktail
    • Double strain if you do not wish to have basil pieces in the drink (Iain does like a bit of basil in his drink!)

    The excellent and very independent vlogger Ralfy Mitchell has just reviewed Glencadam 13 Year Old. 

    As with Ralfy's usual reviews this is as educational as it is entertaining and well worth a watch to get a great insight into Glencadam.

  • Glencadam is the official whisky for the toast on HMS Montrose


    HMS Montrose makes regular trips to it's namesake port of Montrose and we were delighted to be part of her most recent trip this weekend. 

    The crew visited the distillery to enjoy some whisky tastings and Glencadam was the official whisky used at the sunset toast on saturday night onboard the ship. Our Distillery Manager Doug enjoyed a dram and a chat with her Commanding Officer. 

    HMS Montrose will be leaving the port shortly to embark on her next deployment - thanks to all the officers and crew onboard who made us feel so welcome and showed us this incredible frigate. 

    Safe journeys
