Either side of the millennium Cardhu enjoyed phenomenal success in the Spanish, French, Greek and Portuguese markets, so much so, that production of the single malt could not sustain the rapidly rising sales.

Fortunately in 2004 the company conceded and returned Cardhu to its single malt status. View less
