A brief history on Cadenhead's
Independent whisky and rum bottler, Cadenhead's was established in 1842 (175 years ago) at 47 Netherkirkgate, Aberdeen, by a gentleman by the name of George Duncan. A decade later, he invited his brother-in-law William Cadenhead to join him. Duncan passed away in 1858, and Cadenhead took over the business and changed the company name to his own. The company continued to grow over the years, as they bottled more and more interesting whiskies, rums and also gin. In 1972, J & A Mitchell (who also owns Springbank) bought Cadenhead's, and after 130 years of trading at Netherkirkgate, the company moved to Campbeltown. Cadenhead's continues to bottle whiskies that are non chill-filtered and non-coloured today. In 2012, Mark Watt, who had been working for Duncan Taylor, joined the company, and his mission was to rewamp the portfolio of whiskies, and as a result, a number of new ranges were created. In 2017, Cadenhead's celebrated its 175th Anniversary.
