  • Brechin City FC Sponsorship Extended

    We are delighted to extend our main sponsorship with Brechin City Football Club for a further two years. The relationship between the club and Glencadam Distillery dates back a number of years and we look forward to continuing the support of the team which is at the heart of the local community.

    We have a lengthy association with Brechin City FC and the surrounding area and, as the only remaining distillery in Angus, and have retained much of our original character and charm.
     
    Jordan Hillman of Angus Dundee Distillers commented, "We are delighted to renew our sponsorship of Brechin City Football Club for a further two seasons. Glencadam Distillery is a football kick away from Glebe Park, so it is important for us to provide support and backing to our close neighbour as the football club is central to the local community, just as Glencadam Distillery has been since the day it was established in 1825. There is a strong sense of the local community pulling together behind the football club, and it is very important to us to be part of this. We wish Brechin City a successful season and an immediate return to the SPFL."

    Brechin City Chairman Kevin Mackie stated, "I am delighted that Glencadam have agreed to continue to be our main sponsor for the next two years. Their support is hugely appreciated by everyone at the club and it is fantastic to have such a worldwide brand on our doorstep who continue to provide assistance via sponsorship as they join us on the journey ahead."

  • 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 Youtube.
