Cadenhead Bottlers

Cadenhead’s Scotland’s Oldest Independent Bottlers, Campbeltown.

 

William Cadenhead Limited, Wine and Spirit Merchants, was founded in 1842 and was in the ownership of the same family until it was taken over by the well known Campbeltown firm of J & A Mitchell & Co. Ltd who own Springbank Distillery.

 

William Cadenhead passed away in December 1904 and was succeeded in the business of Wine and Spirit Merchants at 47 Netherkirkgate by his nephew Robert W. Duthie, son of Robert Duthie – Superintendent of the Scottish Orphanage in Bombay. He developed what the firm was most famous for, namely single malt Scotch Whisky and Demerara Rum.

 

In the early 1960s things began to get worse as the administration side of the business was poorly adhered to and several ill-advised business decisions were made.

 

The business was suffering and in 1972 there was a two-day sale of the entire stock. The catalogue extended to 167 pages and was, to that date, the largest sale of wines and spirits held in Great Britain. The sale took place in London on 3rd and 4th of October 1972 and resulted in a six-figure surplus over liabilities for the firm.

 

Eventually the premises were sold to J & A Mitchell & Co Ltd, the proprietors of Springbank Distillery.

 

There are several Cadenhead’s shops not only in Campbeltown, but in Edinburgh, London and several on continental Europe.

Auchroisk Distillery

Built in 1972 Auchroisk and production began in 1974. It was first bottled as single malt in 1986 and was the first to carry the prefix ‘Singleton’, a name now attached to single malts from Glen Ord, Glendullan and Dufftown.

 

In 1997 the distillery became part of Diageo following the merger of Grand Metropolitan and Guinness.

 

Although somewhat remote, the large tracts of land surrounding the distillery make this the ideal site for one of Diageo’s main northern warehousing complexes.
