A limited-edition Cardhu single malt, released as part of the Rare Malts Selection range. The whisky was distilled in 1973 and matured for 27 years. It was bottled in October 2000 at a cask strength of 60.02%. The Rare Malts Selection is a large range of single malt bottlings from lesser-known and silent distilleries. It was created in 1995 by United Distillers (later Diageo) and ran until 2005. The whiskies in the series were all distilled in the late 1960s, 70s or early 80s and aged for at least 18 years. Because of its extensive selection of rare bottles, the range is extremely popular among collectors. The success of the Rare Malts Selection eventually led to the creation of Diageo’s annual Special Releases in 2001. The Cardhu distillery in Speyside produces some of the best-selling single malts in the world, but is primarily known as the spiritual home of Johnnie Walker. The distillery was founded in 1824 by John and Helen Cumming, who were already illegally distilling whisky in the years before they got a license. After John’s death in 1846, the distillery was taken over by his wife Helen and their son Lewis. When Lewis died in 1872, his wife Elizabeth gained control of the distillery, which flourished under her leadership. In 1893, Elizabeth sold Cardhu to John Walker & Sons, who used the distillery to produce whisky for their increasingly popular Johnnie Walker blend. Cardhu was acquired by Distillers Company Ltd. in 1930, nowadays known as Diageo.
