Meet our Tamdhu team. We are the ones who produce every drop of Tamdhu single malt whisky (I’m the handsome one in the middle). But I suppose, the word team probably doesn’t do us justice. Family is probably closer to the truth, and I mean literally. We’ve got fathers and sons, in-laws, cousins and best friends all working together here at the distillery.
Locals would be another way to describe us. Some of the guys were born within half a mile of the distillery. So you can imagine, it’s far more than just a job to us lot – it’s a way of life. Of course, when you have a close-knit family working under one roof, fun is never far behind. It has to be said that we take whisky production far more seriously than we take ourselves. Every member of our 15 strong team has a nickname (some, are too cheeky to tell you how they earned their title, and others, I can’t even remember).
But it goes further than just having fun at work, as I am a strong believer that the relationships we share influence the whisky itself. With every dram of Tamdhu, you can taste our shared passion for production and how hard we work together. It’s our bond that helps make every precious drop of Tamdhu the very best it can be.
