Tamdhu Whisky // From Spain to Speyside // A Mini-Documentary
Coolbox joined Distillery Manager Sandy McIntyre and Global Brand Ambassador Gordon Dundas on their journey through Spain to see how Tamdhu’s beautiful sherry casks are produced.
Starting in the north of the country, deep in the forests surrounding Lugo we watched the mighty European Oak trees being felled, and transported to the local sawmill. The staves then enter the cooperages of southern Spain, as expert craftsmen transform the wooden slats into casks over flaming pits. Finally, these casks are filled with Oloroso sherry and are left to mature for several years. They are then shipped to Scotland, to live out their final years in the cool Speyside warehouses at Tamdhu.
